Mapping quantitative trait loci for T lymphocyte subpopulations in peripheral blood in swine

January 2011

Academic Journal
The article presents a study identifying the quantitative trait loci (QTL) for T lymphocyte subpopulations in peripheral blood in swine of three different breed populations. The study found that a number of known genes having potential relationships with the studied traits may serve as candidate genes for these traits within these QTL regions.
