The PiGMaP consortium linkage map of the pig (Sus scrofa)
A linkage map of the porcine genome has been developed by segregation analysis of 239 genetic markers. Eighty-one of these markers correspond to known genes. Linkage groups have been assigned to allExpand

A missense mutation in the gene for melanocyte-stimulating hormone receptor (MCIR) is associated with the chestnut coat color in horses
The melanocyte-stimulating hormone receptor gene (MCIR) is the major candidate gene for the chestnut coat color in horses since it is assumed to be controlled by an allele at the extension locus.Expand

A comprehensive linkage map of the pig based on a wild pig-Large White intercross.
A comprehensive linkage map, including 236 linked markers with a total sex-average map length of about 2300 cM, covering nearly all parts of the pig genome has been established. Linkage groups wereExpand

Mapping quantitative trait loci for immune capacity in the pig.
Immune capacity traits show considerable genetic variation in outbred populations. To identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for immune capacity in the pig, various measures of immune functionExpand

The porcine intestinal receptor for Escherichia coli K88ab, K88ac: regional localization on chromosome 13 and influence of IgG response to the K88 antigen.
The loci encoding the porcine intestinal receptors for Escherichia coli K88ab and K88ac (K88abR and K88acR) were firmly assigned to chromosome 13 by linkage analysis using a three-generationExpand

Confirmed quantitative trait loci for fatness and growth on pig chromosome 4
Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) with large effects on fatness and growth have been identified previously on pig chromosome 4 in an intercross between the European wild pig and Large White domesticExpand

Loss of ZDHHC15 expression in a woman with a balanced translocation t(X;15)(q13.3;cen) and severe mental retardation
X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) affects one in 600 males and is highly heterogeneous. We describe here a 29-year-old woman with severe nonsyndromic mental retardation and a balanced reciprocalExpand

Extensive mtDNA diversity in horses revealed by PCR-SSCP analysis.
The hypervariable D-loop region of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) was amplified with the polymerase chain reaction using total horse DNA samples. Analysis of single strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP)Expand

The extension coat color locus and the loci for blood group O and tyrosine aminotransferase are on pig chromosome 6.
A linkage map of pig chromosome 6 was constructed using a wild pig/Large White intercross pedigree. The map comprises 23 polymorphic loci, and the sex-average map length is approximately 170 cM. TheExpand

The gene for dominant white color in the pig is closely linked to ALB and PDGRFRA on chromosome 8.
White is a widespread coat color among domestic pig breeds and is controlled by an autosomal dominant gene I. The segregation of this gene was analyzed in a reference pedigree for gene mappingExpand
