Genetic determinants for intramuscular fat content and water-holding capacity in mice selected for high muscle mass

Karst, Stefan; Cheng, Riyan; Schmitt, Armin O.; Yang, Hyuna; De Villena, Fernando Pardo Manuel; Palmer, Abraham A; Brockmann, Gudrun A.


Intramuscular fat content and water-holding capacity are important traits in livestock as they influence meat quality, nutritive value of the muscle, and animal health. As a model for livestock, two inbred lines of the Berlin Muscle Mouse population, which had been long-term selected for high muscle mass, were used to identify genomic regions affecting intramuscular fat content and water-holding capacity. The intramuscular fat content of the Musculus longissimus was on average 1.4 times higher...[Show more]
