    In a BXSB/MpJ x (C57BL/10Ola x BXSB/MpJ)F1 backcross population highly significant linkage to gp70 autoantibody production, LOD=36.7, and gp70 immune complex production, LOD=19.9, mapped to mouse Chromosome 13. A total of 97 polymorphic markers were screened at an average spacing of 20 cM. The QTL, named Bxs6 (BXSB/MpJ autoimmune neprhitis 6), was flanked by markers D13Mit64 and D13Mit233 and peaked at marker D13Mit253 [Fig.3.]. Parental strain BXSB/MpJ displays significantly elevated gp70 titers and gp70 immune complex levelscompared to parental strain C57BL/10Ola. This locus also showed linkage to glomerulonephritis supporting the argument that gp70IC may play an important role in the development of glomerulonephritis .

    Homozygosity for BXSB/MpJ-derived alleles at Bsx6 confer increased levels of gp70 immune complex and gp70 autoantibody titers and increased incidence and severity of glomerulonephritis. Gv1 at 36 cM is a previously identified viral antigen locus located near Bxs6. Yaa1 at 35 cM is a gp70 immune complex QTL previously mapped in an NZW x B6 cross that is also located near Bxs6.

    Analysis of Bxs6BXSB/MpJ homozygous animals from the BXSB/MpJ x (C57BL/10Ola x BXSB/MpJ)F1 backcross population detected an interacting locus at 57.9 cM on mouse Chromosome 9 near D9Mit57. This locus is named Gpab1 (gp70autoantibody titers 1). C57BL/6J alleles at Gpab1 derived from the BXSB/MpJ parental strain confer increased gp70 autoantibody titers in conjunction with homozygous BXSB/MpJ alleles at Bxs6.

    A separate backcross population of C57BL/10Ola x (C57BL/10Ola x BXSB/MpJ)F1 animals was analyzed and Bxs6 mapped within and overlapped the same interval on chromosome 13 [Fig.3.] with a LOD=6.2 for gp70 autoantibody production, but did not display linkage to glomerulonephritis.

    10.21.2015 Curator Note: Because Bxs6 was originally mapped here in the BXSB/MpJ x (C57BL/10Ola x BXSB/MpJ)F1 backcross population we consider the C57BL/10Ola x (C57BL/10Ola x BXSB/MpJ)F1 backcross to be a different mapping population. We consider it to be a separate mapping study and have named the QTL identified in this cross Bxs7.
