Notes
  • Experiment
    Linkage analysis using 92 microsatellite markers was performed on 419 animals from an M16i x (CAST/Ei x M16i)F1 backcross to map QTLs associated with growth characteristics such as organ weight and limb length. Parental strain M16i is a long-term selection line for rapid 3- and 6- week weight gain. QTLs reaching the 5% significance threshold are reported. Several of these loci exhibit pleiotropic effects. Markers associated with the confidence interval are given if available.

    On mouse Chromosome 1, linkage to organ weight (Orgwq1) mapped to 63 cM near D1Mit140 (LOD=14.51). The QTL interval of Orgwq1 spans 53 cM (D1Mit9) - 71 cM (D1Mit140). M16i-derived alleles confer decreased heart and kidney weights and increased spleen weight at Orgwq1. Linkage to limb length (Lmblgq1) mapped to 67 cM near D1Mit140 (LOD=13.62). The QTL interval of Lmblgq1 spans 57 cM - 75 cM. M16i-derived alleles confer decreased length of the femur, tibia, humerus, and ulna. Potential candidate genes for Lmblgq1 are Gbx2, En1, and Myog.
