A quantitative trait locus (QTL) was detected and mapped to proximal chromosome 10 near the markers Mpmv5 and D10Mit51 with a strong influence on morphine-induced analgesia in the BXD recombinant inbred (Rl) strains and in an F2 cross (B6D2F2) between the BXD progenitor strains, C57BL/6 and DBA/2. A LOD score of 3.9 (p
