  • Experiment
    Bone mineral density (Bmd1) was measured as a quantitative trait (QTL) in a genome wide scan of 711 F2 mice in a genetic intercross involving C57BL/6J and CAST/Ei mice. C57BL/6J females express a low mineral bone density phenotype, alternatively CAST/Ei male express a high mineral bone density. Regression analysis was informative to show Bmd1 significantly associated with marker D1Mit15 within a defined QTL region bounded by markers D1Mit14 and D1Mit17. Due to the large size of the QTL region the authorsdid not suggest any candidate loci encoding for the bone mineral density phenotype.
