Recent advances in genomics resources and tools are facilitating quantitative trait locus mapping. We developed a crossbreed pedigree for mapping quantitative trait loci for hip dysplasia in dogs by crossing dysplastic Labrador Retrievers and normal Greyhounds. We show that one advantage to using a crossbreed pedigree is the increased marker informativeness(More)
Hip dysplasia is a common inherited trait of dogs that results in secondary osteoarthritis. In this article the methods used to uncover the mutations contributing to this condition are reviewed, beginning with hip phenotyping. Coarse, genome-wide, microsatellite-based screens of pedigrees of greyhounds and dysplastic Labrador retrievers were used to(More)
Hip laxity is one characteristic of canine hip dysplasia (CHD), an inheritable disease that leads to hip osteoarthritis. Using a genome-wide screen with 250 microsatellites in a crossbreed pedigree of 159 dysplastic Labrador retrievers and unaffected greyhounds, we previously identified putative (P < 0.01) QTL on canine chromosomes 11 and 29 (CFA11 and(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the quantitative trait loci (QTL) that contribute to hip dysplasia in dogs. ANIMALS 192 Labrador Retrievers. PROCEDURES Hip dysplasia was measured by use of the Norberg angle (NA), dorsolateral subluxation (DLS) score, and distraction index (DI). Genome-wide screening was conducted by use of 276 unique microsatellites. Linkage(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) associated with osteoarthritis (OA) of hip joints of dogs by use of a whole-genome microsatellite scan. ANIMALS 116 founder, backcross, F1, and F2 dogs from a crossbred pedigree. PROCEDURES Necropsy scores and an optimized set of 342 microsatellite markers were used for interval mapping by means of a(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish baseline normal scotopic electroretinograpic (ERG) parameters for two wild cat species: fishing cats (FC) and leopard cats (LC). ANIMAL STUDIED Twelve normal, FC and eight LC kept in the Chiang Mai Night Safari Zoo, Thailand. The mean ages of FC and LC were 7.08 and 5.00 years, respectively. PROCEDURE All animals were studied(More)
The purpose of the present study was to establish normal electroretinogram (ERG) parameters using 56 normal eyes of four dog breeds common in Thailand: poodle, Labrador retriever, Thai ridgeback, and Thai Bangkaew. Standard ERG findings were bilaterally recorded using a handheld multi-species ERG unit with an ERG-jet lens electrode for 28 dogs under(More)
