Evaluation of linkage between the R-O-i and C blood group systems in sheep

Anim Blood Groups Biochem Genet. 1985;16(1):13-7. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2052.1985.tb01447.x.


Linkage between the C and I blood group loci in sheep was demonstrated by lod score analysis of data from double backcross matings. The recombination frequency between the I locus and the gene coding for the Cb red cell antigen was estimated to be 0.09 with a standard error of 0.04.
