In other species: pig

Categories: Behaviour / neurological phene

Mendelian trait/disorder: no

Mode of inheritance: Multifactorial

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Mapping: V├ąge et al. (2010) genotyped "50 aggressive and 81 non-aggressive dogs" for 62 SNPs in or close to 16 candidate (neurotransmitter-related) genes, and "Allelic associations with aggression were identified for DRD1, HTR1D, HTR2C and SLC6A1".
