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


149 (AKR/J x C57L/J)F2 mice were tested for MNU induced lymphoma tumor incidence (gene Tlag1). An association between Tlag1 and the albino locus was observed in which 50% (20/40) of c/c mice developed tumors whereas only 28% (31/109) of the nonalbino (C/C or C/c) mice did so. In 135 F2 mice there was also a significant association between Hbb and tumor incidence (19/41) over Hbbd/s or Hbbs/ (26/94). There was also a significant association between Hbb and Tyr with Tlag1


AKR/J mice are susceptible to MNU inducrd thymic lymphoma. The authors indicate that susceptibility is controlled by several genes. In (AKR/J x C57L/J)F2 mice one gene (Tlag1) was shown associated with the albino locus, since 6/6 albinos had tumors, and only 2/27 nonalbinos had tumors. The association of tumor incidence with the albino locus suggests tight linkage of Tlag1 and Tyrc on mouse Chromosome 7. X2 = 17.8 1 df p <.0001.
