A quantitative trait locus for live weight maps to bovine Chromosome 23

A quantitative trait locus for live weight maps to bovine Chromosome 23 A multiple-marker mapping approach was used to search for quantitative trait loci (QTLs) affecting production, health, and fertility traits in Finnish Ayrshire dairy cattle.

Abstract

A multiple-marker mapping approach was used to search for quantitative trait loci (QTLs) affecting production, health, and fertility traits in Finnish Ayrshire dairy cattle. As part of a whole-genome scan, altogether 469 bulls were genotyped for six microsatellite loci in 12 families on Chromosome (Chr) 23. Both multiple-marker interval mapping with regression and maximum-likelihood methods were applied with a granddaughter design. Eighteen traits, belonging to 11 trait groups, were included in the analysis. One QTL exceeded experiment level and one QTL genome level significance thresholds. Across-families analysis provided strong evidence (Pexperiment= 0.0314) for a QTL affecting live weight. The QTL for live weight maps between markers BM1258 and BoLA DRBP1. A QTL significant at genome level (Pgenome= 0.0087) was mapped for veterinary treatment, and the putative QTL probably affects susceptibility to milk fever or ketosis. In addition, three traits exceeded the chromosome 5% significance threshold: protein percentage of milk, calf mortality (sire), and milking speed. In within-family analyses, protein percentage was associated with markers in one family (LOD score = 4.5).
