Table 2 Posterior means (standard deviation) of heritability (bold diagonal), genetic correlations (above diagonal), litter correlations (under diagonal), litter variance in proportion to the phenotypic variance (l2), additive genetic variance (σ2a), litter variance (σ2l), and residual variance (σ2e) for linoleic acid (C18:2), eicosadienoic acid (C20:2) and arachidonic acid (C20:4), expressed in either relative (mg/g of fatty acid) or absolute value (mg/g of dry muscle)

From: Linoleic acid metabolic pathway allows for an efficient increase of intramuscular fat content in pigs
