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

J:238309

A large scale study of morphology and cortical micro-structure was performed on a population of mice raised in a controlled environment with known genetic lineage in an effort to link microstructure phenotypes of murine femur bones to specific gene loci.

The QTL mapping population were 2nd generation, intercrossed offspring from two commonly used inbred strains of mice with high C3H/HeJ (C3H) and low C57BL/6J (B6) bone mass. Both strains were homozygous for a mutation in the growth hormone releasing hormone receptor.

A pipelined approach using a fully automated framework based on Synchrotron-based X-ray Tomographic Microscopy (SRXTM) for performing a full 3D characterization of millions of substructures was used to measure 1300 (C3H/HeJ x C57BL/6J)F2 femurs. More than 50 million osteocyte lacunae (cell-sized hollows in the bone) were characterized.

From the metrics, a subset was selected to pursue further with QTL analysis based on a broad-sense heritability criterion of 40%. Genotype information was only available for 755 of the 1132 mice; thus for the rest of the study only those 755 were considered. The extended Haley-Knott method for performing the single-locus scans was used because of its robustness and utilization of genotype information. Gender was an interactive covariant to the model. Genome-wide thresholds for significance and interaction were selected by performing a 2 loci scan again over 1000 permutations of the phenotype over the genotypes.
