Our previous linkage studies indicated that there might be a blood pressure (BP) quantitative trait locus (QTL) on chromosome 3 (Chr 3) contrasting between the Dahl salt-sensitive (S) strain and the Lewis (LEW) strain. To prove and then to narrow down the segment containing this QTL, five congenic strains have been generated by replacing various segments of the S rats with the homologous segments of the LEW rats. They are designated as S.L1, S.L2, S.L3, S.L4, and S.L5, respectively. S.L2, S.L3, S.L4, and S.L5 are substrains of S.L1, i.e., they contain substitutions of smaller sections within the large fragment defined by S.L1. The construction of these congenic strains was facilitated by a genome-wide marker screening process. BPs of the rats were measured by telemetry. S.L2 and S.L3 shared a fragment of Chr 3 in common and both showed a BP-lowering effect, indicating the existence of "-BP" QTL alleles from LEW compared with S. In contrast, S.L4 involves a section with no overlap with either S.L2 or S.L3, and S.L4 showed a BP significantly higher than that of S rats, indicating the presence of "+BP" QTL alleles from LEW compared with S. Interestingly, the combined effect of the -BP QTL and +BP QTL alleles was "-" in S.L1, implying that the "-" QTL is epistatic to "+" QTL.
