Bovine C/EBPa gene

A novel SNP of the C/EBPα gene associated with superior meat quality in indigenous Chinese cattle

H. Wang, Zan, L. S., Wang, H. B., and Song, F. B., A novel SNP of the C/EBPα gene associated with superior meat quality in indigenous Chinese cattle, vol. 10, pp. 2069-2077, 2011.

CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein alpha (C/EBPa) is an essential transcriptional factor regulating the differentiation of adipocytes. We report a novel single nucleotide polymorphism (C271A) of the C/EBPa gene in six indigenous Chinese cattle breeds using PCR-SSCP and DNA sequencing methods. Allele frequencies were investigated and evaluated by the χ2 test in 817 individuals; all populations were found to be in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.
