Mapping and Phenotype information for this QTL, its variants and associated markers


Alcohol consumption and preference in mice were analyzed as a QTL in Recombinant Inbreds(RI) AXB and BXA and progenitor inbreds C57BL/6J and A/J. In males QTLs were found on mouse Chromosomes 2, 5, 7, 10, 11 and 16, and in females QTLs were found on Chromosomes 2, 4, 5, 7, 11, 16, and 19. A QTL for alcohol preference in male AXB/BXA mice was associated with marker D2Mit74 with a LOD score of 3.5 and is designated as Alcp5. Alcp5 did not overlap with Alcp1 as published in J:33277 Melo JA, Nat Genet 1996 Jun;13(2):147-53. In addition A QTL for alcohol preference in female AXB/BXA mice was also associated with marker D2Mit74 with a LOD score of 2.15 and is designated as Alcp6.
