    Background: Inguinal hernias are usually caused by a congenital defect, which occurs as a weakness of the inguinal canal. Porcine β-glucuronidase gene (GUSB) was chosen as functional candidate gene because of its involvement in degradation of hyaluronan within gubernacular tissue during...

    We describe a method for mapping quantitative trait loci that allows for locus heterogeneity. A genome-wide linkage analysis of blood pressure was performed using sib-pair data from the Framingham Heart Study. Evidence of linkage was found on four markers (GATA89G08, GATA23D06, GATA14E09, and...

    Genetic linkage studies of type I diabetes have produced a number of conflicting results, suggesting a high degree of locus heterogeneity in this disease. Approaches which model such heterogeneity will increase the power to fine map susceptibility loci. Here, using data from a genome scan of 356...

  • A genome scan in affected sib-pairs with familial vesicoureteral reflux identifies a locus on chromosome 5. Briggs, Christine E.; Chao-Yu Guo; Schoettler, Cynthia; Rosoklija, Ilina; Silva, Andres; Bauer, Stuart B.; Retik, Alan B.; Kunkel, Louis; Nguyen, Hiep T. // European Journal of Human Genetics;Feb2010, Vol. 18 Issue 2, p245 

    The basis for vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is considered to be primarily genetic, with a 30–50% incidence of VUR in first-degree relatives of patients. The search for the causative gene or genes has been elusive, likely because of VUR being genetically heterogeneous with complex...

    A major susceptibility locus for leprosy has recently been mapped on chromosome 10 (10p 13) by genome-wide linkage analysis. Microsatellite markers from this genome screen that showed suggestive evidence of linkage to leprosy were evaluated in an additional 140 families with affected sib pairs....

    In genomewide linkage scans for complex diseases involving many loci with small genetic effects, it may be the case that no loci reach conventional statistical significance. A complementary method of evaluating linkage results, locus counting, may provide evidence for the existence of a number...
