Supplemental Information

Variants detected in asthmatic and non-asthmatic horses with Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK)

The Venn diagram was generated with SeqMule to identify variants present in all asthmatics before (red) and after challenge (green), and in non-asthmatics before (turquoise) and after challenge (purple).

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.3491v1/supp-1

Predicted effect of variants in all (left) and coding (right) regions for asthmatic horses before (upper) and after (lower) challenge

Analysis was done using Ensembl Variant Effect Predictor (VEP) tools.

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.3491v1/supp-2

Predicted effect of variants from all (left) and coding (right) regions for asthmatic horses before (upper) and after (lower) challenge

Analysis was done using Ensembl Variant Effect Predictor (VEP) tools.

Results of analysis of PACRG (A) and RTTN (B) mutations with PolyPhen2 software

Mutations were predicted as probably damaging in PACRG and RTTN proteins with confidence scores of 0.993 and 0.979, respectively.
