  1. Presented are the results of all fixed effects of the generalised linear mixed model: degrees of freedom (df), Chi-Square values (X2) and p-values. Individual identity of focal mice, t-haplotype status and quad-number of satellite mice were included as random effects. Significant results are printed in bold
