There is little information in the literature about changes in the muscle protein remodeling process in response to the rate of recovery of weight gain after malnutrition in adult animals. The use of RNA sequencing may indicate changes in muscle tissue through a differential expression profile that explains changes in phenotypes associated with muscle growth. Therefore, the objective of this study was to evaluate changes in the transcriptome associated with phenotypes of meat of Nellore adult cows submitted to different rates of weight recovery. In this experiment, 28 adult cows aged 5 to 16 years were randomized into 4 groups: T1-Control animals (slaughtered with low body score
