  • SNP, single-nucleotide polymorphism; QTL, quantitative trait locus.

  • a PASE score comprises physicochemical properties scores and sequence conservation scores. Each of score ranges from 0 and 1, where 0 is neutral, and the greater ratio indicates the stronger effect on the hosting protein.

  • b The consensus nsSNP located in the gene PRDX4 has been detected in four of a total of five in the QQ genotype samples.
