Abstract
<jats:p>This study focused on haplotype effects and linkage disequilibrium (LD) for the K232A locus and the promoter VNTR in the &lt;i&gt;DGAT1&lt;/i&gt; gene. Analyses were carried out in three German Holstein Frisian populations (including 492, 305, and 518 animals) for milk yield, milk fat and protein yield, and milk fat and protein content. We found that effects of the promoter VNTR were not significant and explain only a small amount of the variation of the QTL on BTA14. Haplotype effects were less significant than the K232A locus by itself, but the haplotype containing the A allele of the K232A locus and allele 3 with five repeats of the promoter VNTR show...
