Abstract

The role of genetic factors involved in the determination of risk of cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) in humans remains unclear owing to genetic heterogeneity and reliance on simplistic models of inheritance. Here, we report a statistical genetic analysis of cutaneous malignant melanoma in Sinclair swine (SSCM), a unique animal model for human CMM. Using complex segregation analysis a two-locus model involving an unknown major locus and a second locus that lies within or close to the swine leucocytic antigen (SLA) complex jointly determine risk of SSCM in pedigreed animals. These loci also influence severity of affection, accounting for approximately 20% of the phenotypic variation in quantitative tumour burden.
