Short summary
We used lots of Chinese cattle to detect the specific regional variation in the IGF1R genome. It was found that this variation in the Chinese cattle population is related to the weight and height of the cattle. There is a lot of genetic information in this mutated region, which may be the cause affecting the traits. Our study provided a preliminary result for the functional role of the IGF1R variation in larger populations and for an important marker in cattle breeding programs.
