Table 1 Test of means (t-test) between groups for shear force (kgf/cm2) at 24 h, seven and 14 days of aging, estimated breeding values at 14 days of aging (EBV), intramuscular fat (IMF, %) and ribeye area (REA, cm2)

From: MiRNAs differentially expressed in skeletal muscle of animals with divergent estimated breeding values for beef tenderness
