Wheel running was monitored in B x D recombinant inbred (RI) mice under dark-dark (DD) conditions, and the mean circadian period was calculated for each strain. There were significant differences for this trait among B x D recombinant inbred strains (p < .0001) and a narrow-sense heritability of 21%. Analysis of strain means and variances indicates that at least four segregating loci contribute to the genetic variance for the free-running circadian period in this population. Correlation of the strain means for the circadian period of wheel running for each RI strain against the distribution of markers at over 1500 loci along the mouse genome identified a number of provisional quantitative trait loci (QTL). There were provisional QTL for wheel running at p < .001 on chromosome 11 and at p < .01 on chromosomes 1, 6, 9, 17, and 19. Most were in agreement with a second analysis done under similar conditions.
