Int J Immunopharmacol. 1997;19:469-72 pubmed..VDH was also found to be controlled by polygenes. One dominant major gene, Ltnr3, and three dominant minor genes, Ltnr4, Ltnr5, and Ltnr6, were mapped on chromosomes 6, 9, 15 and 16, respectively. ..

Mamm Genome. 2001;12:278-83 pubmed..The rct locus essential for the onset of the cataract was tightly linked to D4Mit278 on Chromosome (Chr) 4 with no recombination. The mrct locus was closely linked to D5Mit239 (chi2 = 66.3, P < 0.00001) on Chr 5. ..
