The admixture model for linkage heterogeneity is modified to take account of the difference in recombination fractions in the two sexes. The data used may concern a single (marker) locus on one chromosome, which is suspected of being sometimes near a (disease) locus for a particular condition of interest, or there may be data on more than one locus on this(More)
Renal stone formation due to hypercalciuria is a relatively common disorder with clear evidence for genetic predisposition, but cryptic phenotypic heterogeneity has hampered identification of candidate genes. The R990G single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of the calcium sensing receptor (CASR) gene has been associated with hypercalciuria in stone formers(More)
