Mapping of a new quantitative trait locus for resistance to malaria in mice by a comparative mapping approach with human Chromosome 5q31-q33


A number of linkage studies in human populations have identified a locus (pfbi) on Chromosome 5q31-q33 controlling Plasmodiun falciparum blood infection levels. This region contains numerous candidate genes encoding immunological molecules such as cytokines, growth factors and growth-factor receptors. We have used an F11 advance intercross line (AIL… (More)
