Table 3 Means for eggshell-quality traits among genotypes and the contribution to phenotypic variance (CPV) of the diplotypes

From: The sodium channel gene family is specifically expressed in hen uterus and associated with eggshell quality traits

  1. 1EW = Egg Weight; ESW = Eggshell Weight; ESP = Eggshell Percentage after correction; ESS = Eggshell Strength; EST = Eggshell Thickness after correction; % indicates these traits relative to Egg Weight.
  2. 2Different superscript (a, b) means significantly different between different diplotypes of the same gene for certain trait.
  3. 3CPV = SNP contribution to phenotypic variance (%).
