  • Names of peak markers correspond to single nucleotide polymorphism identifiers. QTL, quantitative trait locus; Chr, chromosome; LOD, log of odds ratio; CI, confidence interval. AA and BB are phenotypic values according to the genotype of the peak marker, shown as means (SD).

  • a LOD scores calculated with chr Y as an additive covariate;

  • b LOD scores calculated with origin of chr Y as an interactive covariate (see Fig. 4B for illustration of the interactive effect of chr Y with Cms4 and Cms5).

  • P < 0.01;

  • P < 0.001.
