Diplotype Frequencies. Diplotype frequencies in UK Holstein, German Holstein, German Brown and German Fleckvieh BSE affected (red) and control (light blue) animals. Numbers above the columns represent the haplotypes: (1) 23ins-12ins/23ins-12ins, (2) 23ins-12ins/23del-12ins, (3) 23del-12ins/23del-12del, (4) 23ins-12ins/23del-12del and (5) 23del-12del/23del-12del. The horizontal black lines indicate the expected proportions of cases and controls in each class. The thickness of the columns is proportional to the diplotype frequency. Asterisks indicate the level of significance: * < 0.05, ** < 0.01, *** < 0.001.
