This homozygosis of markers as parent of hebao carp, showed high phenotypic value (3212.
The process caused homozygosis of recessive or deleterious genes and reduced the constitutional heterozygosity of tumor-suppressor genes, giving rise to neoplasia (LASKO et al.
The results show inbreeding in all the population due to an excess of homozygosis.
Also, the results reflected that these populations have controlled management in order to maximize gene purity and homozygosis.
Another patient carried the DQ8 molecule encoded by the DQB1*0302 allele, and the remaining patient had the haplotype DQB1*0501 in homozygosis (15).
Results: Our study identified that only 1 out of the 52 patients with LCA carried the previously unreported homozygosis missense mutation c1174A>C (T392P) of the RPE65 gene.
