Genetic control of resistance to trypanosomiasis uri icon

abstract

  • To map the genetic sources of trypanotolerance in mice, a linkage analysis of survival following trypanosome challenge was performed by selective genotyping in a large F-2 population produced by crossing the resistant C57BL/6 and susceptible BALB/c inbred mouse lines. We report evidence of a chromosomal region of large effect, possibly comprising more than one resistance locus, on Chromosome 17; and of further loci on Chromosomes 1 and 5. Together, these genes can account for all of the difference between the mean parental phenotypes.
