A major pleiotropic quantitative trait locus (QTL) located at ~25Mbp on bovine chromosome 14 affects a myriad of growth and developmental traits in Bos taurus and indicus breeds. These QTL have been attributed to two functional variants in the bidirectional promoter of PLAG1 and CHCHD7, and although PLAG1 is a good candidate for mediating these effects, its role remains uncertain given these variants are also associated with expression of five additional genes at the broader...
