Short summary
ASIP can regulate the obesity of mice but studies of ASIP effects on bovine fat deposition and meat quality are rare. The L1-BT element inserted upstream of bovine ASIP can cause ASIP mRNA overexpression. In this study, L1-BT element indel, two single nucleide polymorphisms (SNPs) in ASIP, and its haplotypes showed significant correlations with fat deposition traits and fatty acid composition in Chinese Simmental steers, suggesting that ASIP may be a biomarker for beef cattle breeding selection.
