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

J:88536

Linkage analysis was performed on 380 animals from a (C57BL/6J x M. m. castaneus)F1 x M. m. castaneus backcross to identify QTLs associated with postnatal growth. A total of 13 novel QTLs were mapped. Pbwg1-Pbwg7 affect the entire growth period whereas Pbw8 and Pbw9 affect the mid- and early growth phases. M. m. castaneus-derived alleles confer reduced growth at Pbwg1-Pbwg7. Pbwg10-Pbwg13 were detected in epistatic interactions involving other Pbwg QTLs.

Linkage analysis was performed on 387 (C57BL/6J x M. m. castaneus)F1 x M. m. castaneus backcross animals to identify QTL associated with postnatal body weight and growth traits. 90 polymorphic markers were used for the genome scan and average intermarker distance varied between 19.5 cM - 20.2 cM. Animals were weighed weekly between 3 - 10 weeks of age. Parental strain M. m. castaneus exhibits 60% smaller body size compared to parental strain C57BL/6J.

Eight previously mapped growth QTL (Pbwg1-Pbwg7, Pbwg9) were detected and re-confirmed in this study. Novel QTL Pbwg14-Pbwg22 were mapped in this experiment. Several of these loci participate in epistatic interactions. M. m. castaneus-derived alleles confer decreased body weight and/or weight gain at allloci except Pbwg9 and Pbwg19 where M. m. castaneus-derived alleles confer increased body weight and/or weight gain.

Pbwg1 mapped to 33 cM on mouse Chromosome 2 with marker D2Mit324 (LOD=3.1-10.9) and is associated with body weight at 4-10 weeks of age, weight gain from 3-6 weeks of age, and weight gain from 6-10 weeks of age. The minimal 95% confidence interval of Pbwg1 spans 17 cM.
