Chromosome 14 Contains Determinants That Regulate Susceptibility to Theiler's Virus-Induced Demyelination in the Mouse

Abstract : Theiler's murine encephalomyelitis virus causes a chronic demyelinating disease in susceptible strains of mice that is similar to human multiple sclerosis. Several nonmajor histocompatibility complex-linked genes have been implicated as determinants of susceptibility or resistance to either demyelination or virus persistence. In this study, we used linkage analysis of major histocompatibility complex identical H-2 d (DBA/2J B10.D2) F 2 intercross mice to identify loci associated with susceptibility to virus-induced demyelinating disease. In a 20-cM region on chromosome 14, we identified four markers, D14Mit54, D14Mit60, D14Mit61, and D14Mit90 that are significantly associated with demyelination. Because two peaks were identified, one near D14Mit54 and one near D14Mit90, it is possible that two loci in this region are involved in controlling demyelination.
