(21,22) Oligogenic versus neurogenic outcomes could be attained depending on the concentrations of 9-cis-RA used in different studies or cross talk with several signaling pathways.
These results contribute to the fact that this trait also has an oligogenic control in bean crop.
Even though HPE, which displays genetic heterogeneity, can occur alongside numerical and structural chromosomal abnormalities, it is also associated with monogenic and oligogenic syndromes as well as environmental factors.
A single homozygous missense mutation in TJP2 has been previously described as causing benign familial hypercholanemia, a rare disorder of oligogenic inheritance, which usually manifests in elevated serum BS concentrations, pruritus, and fat malabsorption, but which does not lead to the development of liver disease [68].
While DH is currently considered a monogenic disease, cases carrying digenic or oligogenic mutations have been reported [11-17].
Presence of more than one IHH-associated mutant gene in a patient/pedigree (oligogenic inheritance) is thought to account for 10-20% of all IHH cases (11,12,13,14).
Result indicates the resistance is oligogenic or polygenic with partial and race-nonspecific resistance.
2002), and allele frequency estimation and Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (HWE) were estimated using Sequential Oligogenic Linkage Analysis Routines (SOLAR) (Blangero and Almasy 1996).
The most convincing suggestion is that AS is oligogenic model with predominantly multiplicative interaction between loci in a sibling recurrent risk studies [6].
Whenever, the variance component linkage analysis detected evidence of potential linkage signals in more than one genomic location, we applied the oligogenic QTL approach: i) a locus with the highest LOD score was incorporated in the variance component model, ii) the genome scan for a second locus was repeated, conditional on the QTL detected in the previous scan.
