Table 1 Estimates of the position of the bone quality QTL located on chromosome 1 in hens of an F2 reciprocal cross between White Leghorn hens divergently selected for bone index

From: An eQTL in the cystathionine beta synthase gene is linked to osteoporosis in laying hens

Trait Position (cM) 95% CI (cM) F statistic Flanking markers aPosition (Mb)
Tibiotarsal breaking strength 363 (370) 348–402 (138–416) 16.2 (13.2) ROS0081 ADL0148 111.2–113.1
Humeral breaking strength 365 (343) 129–381 (30–376) 11.1 (7.9) ADL0268-MCW0061 90.2–90.2
Bone index 364 (364) 325–401 (198–393) 12.3 (9.3) Ost109151638-ADL0148 107.0–113.1
  1. The values in brackets represent the values found in the original analysis [16]
  2. aPositions in Mb on the chicken genome galGal6 build were calculated from the position of the flanking markers on the 2011 (galGal4) build, then updated using Liftover
