Abstract [en]

With chicken used as a model species, we used QTL analysis to examine the genetic contribution to bone traits. We report the identification of four QTLs for femoral traits: one for bone strength, one for endosteal circumference, and two affecting mineral density of noncortical bone. Introduction: BMD is a highly heritable phenotype, governed by elements at numerous loci. In studies examining the genetic contribution to bone traits, many loci have been identified in humans and in other species. The goal of this study was to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) controlling BMD and bone strength in an intercross between wildtype and domestic chickens. Materials and Methods: A set of 164 markers, covering 30 chromosomes (chr.), were used to genotype 337 F 2-individuals from an intercross of domesticated white Leghorn and wildtype red junglefowl chicken. DXA and pQCT were used to measure BMD and bone structure. Three-point bending tests and torsional strength tests were performed to determine the biomechanical strength of the bone. QTLs were mapped using forward selection for loci with significant marginal effects. Results: Four QTLs for femoral bone traits were identified in QTL analysis with body weight included as a covariate. A QTL on chr. 1 affected female noncortical BMD (LOD 4.6) and is syntenic to human 12q21-12q23. Also located on chr. 1, a locus with synteny to human 12q 13-1.4 affected endosteal circumference (LOD 4.6). On chr. 2, a QTL corresponding to human 5p13-p15, 7p12, 18q12, 18q21, and 9q22-9q31 affected BMD in females; noncortical (LOD 4.0) and metaphyseal (LOD 7.0) BMD by pQCT and BMD by DXA (LOD 5.9). A QTL located on chr. 20 (LOD 5.2) affected bone biomechanical strength and had sex-dependent effects. In addition to the significant QTLs, 10 further loci with suggestive linkage to bone traits were identified. Conclusions: Four QTLs were identified: two for noncortical BMD, one for endosteal circumference, and one affecting bone biomechanical strength. The future identification of genes responsible for these QTLs will increase the understanding of vertebrate skeletal biology.

Abstract [en]

Osteoporosis is a disease that leads to decreased bone mineral density (BMD), an altered bone micro-architecture and fragile bones. The disease is highly heritable and numerous genes are thought to be involved, making it difficult to identify the causative genetic elements.

Animal models, mainly intercrosses between laboratory strains of mice, have been succesfully used to map genes affecting these traits, but may not mirror the multifactorial genetic etiology of highly complex traits such as osteoporosis.

Over the course of tens of thousand years humans have kept domestic animals whose phenotypic repertoires have been tailored to meet our needs. Wild-type red junglefowl (RJ) and domestic White Leghorn (WL) chicken differ for several bone traits.

In this thesis Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) mapping was used to trace the inheritance of bone traits in two separate intercrosses between RJ and WL. In these studies we identified several QTL that contributed to differences in BMD, bone size and biomechanical strength of bone. In a comparison of QTL identified in the two intercrosses it was observed that nine QTL had overlapping genomic positions, implicating these loci as important to bone phenotypic variation in chicken.

In two separate studies, microarray technology was used to compare global gene expression in bone tissue from RJ and WL. In these studies, differential expression was observed for 779 and 560 genes, respectively. Many differentially expressed genes were co-localized with QTL, which implicates them as QTL-candidates.

Results presented in this thesis link several genomic regions and genes to variation in bone traits. Increased knowledge about these identified genes and regions will contribute to a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying inter-individual differences in bone metabolism, both in chicken and man.
