Note that only significant associations are shown in this table. AFW = abdominal fat weight; CPCLM = crude protein content of leg muscle; SFT = subcutaneous fat thickness. Values within a row without a common superscript letter differ and values with superscript letters differ significantly ( and each). Genotypes of a and b mean they differed significantly ( ) and genotypes of a and B mean they differed great significantly ( ).
