A strong local eQTL on chromosome 2 regulates the expression of Scg5 in BXD, CXB and BXH mouse crosses. Mapping of Scg5 expression in A) whole brain from B6 × DBA (BXD) recombinant inbred (RI) mice, B) hippocampus from BALB × B6 (CXB) RI mice, and C) whole brain from BXH-ApoE-/- F2 mice. eQTL were identified using interval mapping tools available at [15, 16] for BXD and CXB crosses and R/qtl [38] software for BXH-ApoE-/- F2 mice.
