1P-values obtained with the model that includes the QTL and the DQ124298:g.344A>G MUC4 SNP effects; each effect(s) was tested by removing it from the null model; 2QTL position (in cM); c.i = confidence interval; 3QTL additive effect; SE = standard error; 4DQ124298:g.344A>G MUC4 SNP additive effect; 5QTL position in cM when corrected by the DQ124298:g.344A>G MUC4 SNP effect.
