As the Arg [right arrow] Gly substitution which we have been found was just located in the LIM2 domain (Figure 2), the results presented here probably resulted from the functional change of FHL3 protein, and hereby further argued for FHL3 gene as a candidate gene for the production traits related to skeletal muscle.
LIM2 = 1 if individual reports can perform UA but is limited in kind and amount of activity because of chronic condition
