From: Expression of genes controlling fat deposition in two genetically diverse beef cattle breeds fed high or low silage diets

Figure 2

Relative expression levels of nine genes in the longissimus lumborum muscle of Alentejana and Barrosã fed high or low silage diets. Each value was normalized to PPIB expression. Al-HS: Alentejana bulls fed the high silage diet; Al-LS: Alentejana bulls fed the low silage diet; Ba-HS: Barrosã bulls fed the high silage diet; Ba-LS: Barrosã bulls fed the low silage diet. ACACA and PPARG relative expression levels were adjusted for total lipids content. CRAT relative expression levels were adjusted for breed × diet × total lipids content. FABP4 relative expression levels were adjusted for diet × total lipids content. SCD relative expression levels were adjusted to breed × total lipids content. Error bars indicate standard error. Tendencies were considered for 0.05 < P < 0.10. a,b,c Least square means with different superscripts differ at least P < 0.05.
