List of haplotypes inferred from 237 polymorphisms for 40 mouse priority strains. To be consistent with the Vkorc1 direction in the mouse genome, the polymorphisms (5'→3') start from right to left. Question marks and the blank indicate the gaps and missing data, respectively. Locations of polymorphisms in the mouse Vkorc1 reference sequence (Ensembl No. ENSMUSG00000030804) are shown on the top. SNPs identifiers (rs number) are shown for the published SNPs. Five non-synonymous polymorphisms are indicated with Arg12Trp, Ala21Thr, Ala26Ser, Ala48Thr and Arg61Leu, and four synonymous polymorphisms are indicated with Leu10Leu, Glu37Glu, Arg53Arg, and Cys132Cys. Negative numbers indicate the locations of the polymorphisms in the 5' flanking region. Seven multiple-base indels are replaced by E (ATGCCTTTGATCCCAGCACTTCTGAGGCAGAAGCAGGCAAAGCTCTGAGTTCAAGGCCAGCCTGGTCT), Z (ACACAGTTC), X (CTGTAAAGCTACTATTAACAGGACGGTA), L (ACACA), O(ATTGGGT), P (CAGCCCC), and Q (AGA).

Dendrogram for 40 mouse priority strains with haplotypes 1–10 (haplotype identifiers in parentheses) based on the prothrombin time (PT) and bone mineralization (BMD/C) values. Haplotypes different from those found in most of the commonly used strains are labeled in red.
