Abstract :

In tabulated form the localization is presented of all QTLs for milk production traits in cattle known
from publications till April 2006 with special reference to those responsible for mastitis, fertility
and other traits important in marker-assisted selection. The distribution is analysed of QTLs in Bos
taurus autosomes, as well as most probable localization of QTLs for milk production traits. Special
attention is paid to autosomes 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 14, 19, 20, 23, 26, 27 and sex chromosome X. An
evidence is provided for the pleiotropy of QTLs as a widely extended phenomenon in dairy cattle.
