Short summary
Genetic markers are important tools for beef cattle breeding. Our work suggests that CAPN1 genetic markers have a positive effect on meat tenderness and marbling traits, the most important meat quality traits for consumers. The associations between the genotyped SNPs in this research and meat quality traits are of potential interest to the beef industry and could lay an important foundation for the expanding panel of functional variation relevant to meat quality.
