Table 3 Posterior mean (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 body weight (BW), backfat thickness (BT) and intramuscular fat content (IMF)

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