Mapping and characterization of the dominant black colour locus in sheep.
Dominant black pigment synthesis in sheep is caused by alterations of the melanocortin-1 receptor (MC1-R) coding sequence. Using five bovine microsatellite markers we have mapped the sheep MC1-R geneExpand

Genetic characterization of Latin-American Creole cattle using microsatellite markers.
Genetic diversity in and relationships among 26 Creole cattle breeds from 10 American countries were assessed using 19 microsatellites. Heterozygosities, F-statistics estimates, genetic distances,Expand

Microsatellite analysis of a sample of Uruguayan Creole bulls (Bos taurus)
The Uruguayan Creole cattle genetic reserve consists of a herd of about 600 animals (bulls, cows and calves) located in an indigenous habitat of 650 hectares. In a previous study, a random sampleExpand

Localisation of aphidicolin-induced break points in Holstein-Friesian cattle (Bos taurus) using RBG-banding
Fragile sites (FS) seem to play a role in genome instability and may be involved in karyotype evolution and chromosome aberrations. The majority of common fragile sites are induced by aphidicolin.Expand

Analysis of the population structure of Uruguayan Creole cattle as inferred from milk major gene polymorphisms
The ancestors of Uruguayan Creole cattle were introduced by the Spanish conquerors in the XVII century, following which the population grew extensively and became semi-feral before the introductionExpand

Karyological studies on Uruguayan spiders I. banding pattern in chromosomes of Lycosa species (araneae-lycosidae)
C-, Gand Q-banding patterns of mitotic and meiotic chromosomes of Lycosa malitiosa Tullgren, Lycosa thorelli Keyserling and Lycosa sp. were studied. Small C-bands are localized in the centromericExpand
