A comprehensive genetic map of the cattle genome based on 3802 microsatellites.
A microsatellite-based high-density genetic map facilitates for fine mapping of hereditary traits of interest, characterization of meiosis, and providing a foundation for physical map construction.Expand

alpha-Galactosidase A deficient mice: a model of Fabry disease.
Fabry disease is an X-linked inherited metabolic disorder that is caused by a deficiency of alpha-galactosidase A (alpha-Gal A). Progressive deposition of neutral glycosphingolipids that haveExpand

Mapping of quantitative trait loci controlling trypanotolerance in a cross of tolerant West African N'Dama and susceptible East African Boran cattle
Trypanosomosis, or sleeping sickness, is a major disease constraint on livestock productivity in sub-Saharan Africa. To identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) controlling resistance to trypanosomosisExpand

Genome-wide association study identified three major QTL for carcass weight including the PLAG1-CHCHD7 QTN for stature in Japanese Black cattle
BackgroundSignificant quantitative trait loci (QTL) for carcass weight were previously mapped on several chromosomes in Japanese Black half-sib families. Two QTL, CW-1 and CW-2, were narrowed down toExpand

A comprehensive radiation hybrid map of the bovine genome comprising 5593 loci.
A bovine whole genome 7000-rad radiation hybrid (RH) panel, SUNbRH(7000-rad), was constructed to build a high-resolution RH map. The Shirakawa-USDA linkage map served as a scaffold to construct aExpand

Quantitative trait loci analysis for growth and carcass traits in a half-sib family of purebred Japanese Black (Wagyu) cattle.
We used a half-sib family of purebred Japanese Black (Wagyu) cattle to locate economically important quantitative trait loci. The family was composed of 348 fattened steers, 236 of which wereExpand

Quantitative trait loci analysis for growth and carcass traits in a Meishan x Duroc F2 resource population.
We constructed a pig F2 resource population by crossing a Meishan sow and a Duroc boar to locate economically important trait loci. The F2 generation was composed of 865 animals (450 males and 415Expand

Identification of bovine QTL for growth and carcass traits in Japanese Black cattle by replication and identical-by-descent mapping
To map quantitative trait loci (QTL) for growth and carcass traits in a purebred Japanese Black cattle population, we conducted multiple QTL analyses using 15 paternal half-sib families comprisingExpand

Mapping of quantitative trait loci for carcass traits in a Japanese Black (Wagyu) cattle population.
To detect quantitative trait loci (QTL) that influence economically important traits in a purebred Japanese Black cattle population, we performed a preliminary genome-wide scan using 187Expand
