Table 5 Least square means (LSM) and standard error (SE) for somatic cell scores of different genotypes

From: Two single nucleotide polymorphisms sites in α1-AT gene and their association with somatic cell score in Chinese Holstein cows

Polymorphic site Genotype Number of samples Somatic cell score
G5503A AA 97 4.27 ± 0.13a
AB 124 3.81 ± 0.10b
BB 46 3.29 ± 0.18c
G5746C CC 93 3.97 ± 0.15a
CD 131 3.91 ± 0.11a
DD 43 3.65 ± 0.20a
  1. Least squares means with the same superscript for the same site have no significant difference (p > 0.05). Least squares means with the different superscripts for the same site differ significantly (p < 0.05)
