Analysis of quantitative trait loci for blood pressure on rat chromosomes 2 and 13. Age-related differences in effect.
Previous studies have suggested the presence of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) influencing blood pressure on rat chromosomes 2 and 13. In this study, we mapped the QTLs in F2 rats derived from a cross of the spontaneously hypertensive rat and the Wistar-Kyoto rat and analyzed the effect of the QTLs on blood pressures measured longitudinally between 12 and 25 weeks of age. We analyzed 16 polymorphic markers spanning 147.3 cM on chromosome 2 and 13 markers spanning 91.6 cM on chromosome 13. Bot...Expand abstract
