- Identification of genetic regions of importance for reproductive performance in female miceMaria Liljander
Lund Transgenic Core Facility, Lund University, Sweden
Genetics 173:901-9. 2006..It is well known that reproductive performance is polygenically controlled, and the identification of the major loci in this complex process opens the possibility of investigating the natural genetic control of reproduction...
- Increased litter size and super-ovulation rate in congenic C57BL mice carrying a polymorphic fragment of NFR/N origin at the Fecq4 locus of chromosome 9Maria Liljander
Lund Transgenic Core Facility, Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
Genet Res (Camb) 91:259-65. 2009..Genes of the cytochrome P450 family (1, 11 and 19), such as Cyp19a1, are assumed to be particularly interesting, since they are known to exhibit female-associated reproductive phenotypes, affecting the ovulation rate, if mutated...
- Identification of collagen-induced arthritis loci in aged multiparous female miceMaria Liljander
Lund Transgenic Core Facility, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
Arthritis Res Ther 8:R45. 2006..This study indicates that several gene loci control arthritis in aged multiparous females, and that at least one of these loci coincides with pregnancy failure...
- Increased susceptibility to collagen-induced arthritis in female mice carrying congenic Cia40/Pregq2 fragmentsMaria Liljander
Lund Transgenic Core Facility, BMC C13, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
Arthritis Res Ther 10:R88. 2008..The present study was performed to evaluate the role of the Cia40 locus in congenic B10.Q mice and to identify possible polymorphic candidate genes, which may also be relevant in the context of RA...
