Short summary
The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression level and genetic variation of the ACSL1 gene of the Dezhou donkey and its effect on growth traits. The results show that the ACSL1 gene is regularly expressed in Dezhou donkey tissue. Through the association analysis of the genotype and haplotype combination and growth traits, it is speculated that the ACSL1 gene can be used as a candidate gene for Dezhou donkey breeding.
