Tir3  -  trypanosome infection response 3

Mus musculus

Disease relevance of Tir3

  • Mapping in the AILs also resolved the Tir3 locus into three trypanosomiasis resistance QTLs, revealing a degree of complexity not evident in extensive studies at the F(2) level [1].

High impact information on Tir3


Biological context of Tir3

  • The difference in survival time between the relatively resistant C57BL/6 J and more susceptible BALB/c inbred strains has been attributed to three quantitative trait loci (QTLs), Tir1, Tir2 and Tir3 [3].

Other interactions of Tir3

  • Here we report fine mapping of Tir1, Tir2, and Tir3 in G6 populations of two independent murine AILs created by crossing the C57BL/6J strain with the A/J and BALB/cJ strains, respectively [1].
