Description:

Note that the authors have issued a major correction to this paper (Anim Genet. 2006 Dec;37(6):608). It is not yet clear whether the parent-of-origin effect has been affected.
In laying hens, using an imprinted model, a suggestive maternally-expressed, chromosome wide QTL for immune response to sheep red blood cells was detected on Gallus gallus (GGA) chromosome 6, between markers MCW0004 and MVCW0006 (Siwek M et al, 2003).
