  1. Additive (a) and dominance (d) effect for mutations in position c.2360 and c.960 respectively, and the interaction effect (int), when both mutations are present. The P-value of genotype classes contrasted with the wild type (GG_GG) is presented as superscript, while the P-value for G(delG)_GG, G(delG)_AG and (delG)(delG)_GG contrasted with GG_AA is given in subscript. The P-values are given only for significant findings (P < 0.05).
