The SRY-type HMG box 9 (Sox9) gene plays an important role in chondrocyte development as well as changes in hypertrophic chondrocytes, indicating that Sox9 can regulate growth in animals. However, no studies to date have examined the correlation between variations in Sox9 and growth traits in goats. Here, we found a 4 bp indel in the 3′UTR of Sox9 and verified its association with growth traits in Shaanbei white cashmere goats (n = 1109). The frequencies of two genotypes (ID and II) were 0.397doi:10.3390/ani10040672 pmid:32294879 fatcat:vx6kgosujjefrijlb3gbuymlui
