QTL location and effect for stress response trait0073. Summary of QTL location and effect for stress response traits using combined sire (and dam) half-sib family regression analysis performed with software GridQTL (Seaton et al. 2006). The QTL effect is expressed in ng/mL of plasma cortisol, and the allele substitution effect for each parent was tested using a one-sided t-test (testing absolute t-values) with one DF. Within each trait QTL group, the sire or dam parent that is most likely segregating the QTL allele is indicated with an asterisk (*), and the parent with the lowest P-value is bold text highlighted. The average QTL location was determined using 10000 bootstraps with re-sampling.
