Z

Fifth letter of a Nasdaq stock symbol indicating that listing is a fifth class of preferred stock, a stub, a certificate representing a limited partnership interest, foreign preferred when issued, or a second class of warrants.

Z

1. A symbol appearing next to a stock listed on NASDAQ indicating that the share being traded has a miscellaneous right, warrant, or receipt attached to it. All NASDAQ listings use a four-letter abbreviation; if a Z follows the abbreviation, it indicates that the share's category does not easily fit into other categories.

2. In over-the-counter trading, a symbol meaning that no quote is available for a security.

3. On a table, a symbol indicating an exact number, instead of an estimate, of securities traded.

z

1. Used in stock transaction tables in newspapers to indicate that the volume reported is the actual number of shares transacted, not the number of round lots: z150.
2. Used in over-the-counter stock transaction tables to indicate that no representative quote is available: z.

(b) Genome-wide LOD score plot of single-QTL scans for plasma TG concentrations (solid lines: cross direction as an additive covariate; broken lines: cross direction and body weight as additive covariates).
The peak LOD score for [a.sup.*] and [b.sup.*] on GGA 24 occurred at the BCDO2 locus, an obvious candidate gene for shank skin color variations (Eriksson et al., 2008).
Genome-wide genotyping, haplotyping, and fine mapping linked renal Hg accumulation to three genes with identical LOD scores of 1.94: Btrc, Pprc1, and Nfkb2.
In this study, we used, for the first time, LOD score linkage analysis to identify loci that contribute to the expression of the microvascular complications of RET and NEPH.
Two-point LOD scores between the disease phenotype and markers in this region are summarized in Figure-1B.
El gen IL13RA3 esta localizado en el cromosoma Xq13.1-q28, donde se han descrito ligamiento con LOD score mayor a 2 y alteraciones citogeneticas (60, 61); por lo que han sido postulados otros genes candidato como los genes de las neuroliguinas 3 y 4 (NLGN3 o Neuroligin 3) (25).
Nine of the distorted markers (TUMXLv9.28, 5.38, 9.43, 6.3, 9.93, L29.2, 10.208, 10.255, and 10.323) located on to LG4 using LOD score of 3.0 (Fig.

The linkage analyses are repeated for various values of [Theta] and results are reported as the logarithm of the odds of likelihood of linkage, or lod score, for each family and summed for the total families.
The linkage map was generated from the data using MAPMAKER 3.0b with a LOD score of 3.0.
Thus, the maximum (i.e., peak) LOD score for these markers was 2.5 in the initial sample and 1.6 in the replication sample, suggestive of genetic linkage.
The chromosomal location with the highest LOD score (linkage odds score) is marked as the most likely location for a QTL affecting the trait.
