C57Bl/6 mice reproducibly prefer to ingest more 10% ethanol in a two-bottle choice paradigm than do DBA/2J mice. In this paper we report the identification of two new sex-specific alcohol preference (Alcp) loci. Melo and associates (1996) identified two loci: Alcp1, a male-specific locus on Chromosome (Chr) 2, and Alcp2, a female- and cross-specific locus on Chr 11. We have additionally identified Alcp3, a male-specific locus on Chr 3, and Alcp4, a female-specific locus on Chr 1. We have also performed a statistical analysis to exclude the possibility of undiscovered major alcohol preference loci that are not sex-specific in our backcross paradigm. Our results indicate that alcohol preference in C57BL/6 mice, as measured in our backcross, is largely controlled in a sex-specific manner.
