We have produced a backcross (BC) population of 267 mice from the parental strains C3H/HeN and C58/J. The mice were phenotyped for neuropathic pain using the neuroma model. Subsequently all BC mice were genotyped in a region of chromosome 15 that has been previously suggested to contain a quantitative trait locus (QTL) for this trait. We have confirmed the linkage of the QTL, named pain1, to the central region of chromosome 15. Our finding provides the necessary robustness to justify efforts towards identification of the underlying gene.
