See Table 2 for details.

  • a The effect of a marker was not included if significance of this marker was not retained in the model including markers at 61C, 62B, and 75A as cofactors (see results for explanations).

  • b Significance of the marker effect when the markers 61C, 62B + 61C, and 75A were included as cofactors. A marker was retested with more cofactors only if it was significant.
