Ticks and tick-born diseases are major constraints on cattle production in tropical and subtropical regions in the world. Previously, we identified single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with tick resistance on bovine chromosome 3 at approximately 70 Mb. In this study, we genotyped a dairy (n = 1133) and a beef (n = 774) sample to confirm the association of the intronic SNP rs29019303 and its gene (ELTD1) with tick burden. We genotyped 18 additional SNPs in a region of 181 kb and… CONTINUE READING
