Lyons, L. A., S. J. Bailey, et al. (2006). “The Tabby cat locus maps to feline chromosome B1.” Anim Genet 37(4): 383-6.
The Tabby markings of the domestic cat are unique coat patterns for which no causative candidate gene has been inferred from other mammals. In this study, a genome scan was performed on a large pedigree of cats that segregated for Tabby coat markings, specifically for the Abyssinian (Ta-) and blotched (tbtb) phenotypes.
