Segregation analysis of overweight body condition in an experimental cat population


Häring, T. Segregation analysis of overweight body condition in an experimental cat population. 2011, University of Zurich, Vetsuisse Faculty.

Abstract

The goal of this study was to analyze the mode of inheritance of an overweight body
condition in an experimental cat population. The cat population consisted of 95 cats
out of which 81 cats could be clearly classified into lean or overweight using a body
condition score system (BCS). The classification into lean or overweight of these 81
cats was used for segregation analyses. Complex segregation analyses were
performed to test for the significance of one environmental and 4 genetic models
(general, mixed inheritance, major gene, and polygene). The major gene model
explained the segregation of the overweight phenotype best. This meant that the first
time a genetic component could be shown to be responsible for the development of
overweight in cats.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
