Validation of CNVR#456 on BTA18 and its association with breeding values. Relative copy number per haploid genome was calculated for 132 sires using real-time qPCR of amplicon I from CNVR#456 near SNP position 41,760,794 on BTA18. Dashed line denotes the linear regression of these sires' breeding values for the Israeli total merit index (PD07) on copy number of amplicon I (p < 8 × 10-4).
