A linkage map of the porcine genome has been developed by segregation analysis of 239 genetic markers. Eighty-one of these markers correspond to known genes. Linkage groups have been assigned to all 18 autosomes plus the X Chromosome (Chr). As 69 of the markers on the linkage map have also been mapped physically (by others), there is significant integration(More)
Frequency distribution and allele size in 20 canine microsatellite loci were analyzed in 33 flat-coated retrievers, 32 dachshunds, 10 red foxes, and 10 Arctic foxes. Overall, the major difference between the two dog breeds was the relative allele frequencies rather than the size ranges of alleles at the individual locus. The average heterozygosity within(More)
Twenty-four PCR primer pairs were designed for the detection of porcine microsatellites. Polymorphism was investigated in 76 unrelated animals from four different breeds: Duroc, Landrace, Hampshire, and Yorkshire. Compared with human microsatellites, a general lower heterozygosity was detected; however, for each microsatellite a significant variation(More)
Complementary DNA sequences were selected from a resource of tentatively identified clones from a porcine small intestine cDNA library. Forty PCR primer pairs were designed to amplify 101–309 base pairs of the 3′ untranslated region of the genes. The PCR conditions were optimized by altering both formamide and magnesium concentrations on samples of pig,(More)
A major step towards a comparative map of the porcine genome was taken by ZOO-FISH chromosome painting that allowed determination of synteny conservation between human and pig (Rettenberger et al. 1995; Fronicke et al. 1996; Goureau et al. 1996). However, internal rearrangements of gene order within regions of synteny conservation are not uncovered in these(More)
The porcine genes encoding interleukin 2, alcohol dehydrogenase (class I) gamma polypeptide, and osteopontin were mapped to chromosome 8 by linkage analysis. Together with previous assignments to this chromosome (the albumin, platelet-derived growth factor receptor A, and fibrinogen genes), an extensive syntenic homology with human chromosome 4 was(More)
Parentage control has been performed for 15 litters from 12 different dog breeds by amplification of microsatellites. As it was possible to include all putative parents in all cases, they were solved by exclusion. Discrimination between parents/non-parents was made after genotyping of 6-9 microsatellite loci. In 12 of the cases all but one of the alleged(More)
We have used a PCR-based approach for the genetical and physical mapping of 34 transcripts isolated from a porcine small intestine cDNA library. All but one gene were regionally localized by using a somatic pig-rodent cell hybrid panel, and 12 genes were mapped by linkage analysis of single-stranded conformational polymorphisms developed in 3′ untranslated(More)
A porcine small intestine directionally cloned cDNA library was constructed in the vector lambda Zap II. Clones were hybridized with total labeled cDNA such that putative high-copy number transcripts could be differentiated from middle- and low-copy number transcripts prior to selection and characterization by DNA sequencing. More than 2000 non-hybridizing(More)
