Rethinking dog domestication by integrating genetics, archeology, and biogeography
The dog was the first domesticated animal but it remains uncertain when the domestication process began and whether it occurred just once or multiple times across the Northern Hemisphere. ToExpand

Arthrosis in the elbow joint of young rapidly growing dogs: a genetic investigation
In cooperation with breed clubs and practising veterinarians throughout Norway, the elbow joints of rottweilers, Bernese mountain dogs and Newfoundlands were screened for osteophyteExpand

A deletion in nephronophthisis 4 (NPHP4) is associated with recessive cone-rod dystrophy in standard wire-haired dachshund.
Cone-rod dystrophy is a retinal degenerative disorder occurring naturally in man and dog. Here we identify a novel gene for early-onset cone-rod dystrophy in the wire-haired dachshund. For the firstExpand

Canine homolog of the T-box transcription factor T; failure of the protein to bind to its DNA target leads to a short-tail phenotype
Abstract. Domestic dog breeds show a wide variety of morphologies and offer excellent opportunities to study the molecular genetics of phenotypic traits. We are interested in exploring this potentialExpand

A mutation in canine CLN5 causes neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis in Border collie dogs.
Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL) is a neurodegenerative disease found in Border collie dogs, humans, and other animals. Disease gene studies in humans and animals provided candidates for the NCLExpand

Spondylosis deformans in the boxer: estimates of heritability.
This study presents the estimates of heritability for spondylosis deformans in the boxer based on 353 offspring from 24 randomly selected sires, each with at least three radiographically investigatedExpand

DLA Class II Alleles Are Associated with Risk for Canine Symmetrical Lupoid Onychodystropy (SLO)
Symmetrical lupoid onychodystrophy (SLO) is an immune-mediated disease in dogs affecting the claws with a suggested autoimmune aethiology. Sequence-based genotyping of the polymorphic exon 2 fromExpand

Identification of genetic variation in 11 candidate genes of canine mammary tumour.
The incidence of canine mammary tumours (CMTs) differs significantly between breeds, strongly supporting an influence of genetic risk factors. We aimed at identifying germline genetic variations inExpand

Haploid gynogenesis: A powerful strategy for linkage analysis in fish
Abstract Inspired by the recently introduced single sperm typing and by turning to account natural features of fish reproduction and development (e.g. parthenogenesis), we have established anExpand
