Human centromeres have been extensively studied over the past two decades. Consequently, more is known of centromere structure and organization in humans than in any other higher eukaryote species. Recent advances in the construction of a human (or mammalian) artificial chromosome have fostered increased interest in determining the structure and function of(More)
This paper presents the design and implementation of the NCTUns 1.0 network simulator, which is a high-fidelity and extensible network simulator capable of simulating both wired and wireless IP networks. By using an enhanced simulation methodology, a new simulation engine architecture, and a distributed and open-system architecture, the NCTUns 1.0 network(More)
A clone of highly repetitive DNA, designated C5, was isolated from DNA of female Chinese muntjac cells. The nucleotide sequence of this clone is 80%–85% homologous to that of the satellite IA clone and other highly repetitive DNA clones previously obtained from the Indian muntjac. Using C5 as a probe for in situ hybridizations to chromosome preparations of(More)
The aim of this study was to test the validity of the hypothesis that the 2n=46 karyotype of the Chinese muntjac (Muntiacus reevesi) could have evolved through 12 tandem fusions from a 2n=70 hypothetical ancestral karyotype, which is still retained in Chinese water deer (Hydropotes inermis) and brown-brocket deer (Mazama gouazoubira). Combining(More)
A highly repetitive DNA clone, designated Rt-Pst3, was isolated from thePstI digest of Canadian woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou; 2n = 70) genomic DNA. It was found to be a 991 bp monomer of a tandemly repeated DNA sequence comprising about 5.7% of the genome and localized to the centromeric regions of all caribou acrocentric autosomes. Southern(More)
A centromeric satellite DNA clone was isolated from the genome of the European red deer (Cervus elaphus hippelaphus) and designated Ce-Pst1. This clone was localized to the centromeric region of all red deer chromosomes with the exception of a single pair of metacentric autosomes and the Y chromosome. DNA sequence analysis of the 806-bp Ce-Pst1 clone showed(More)
A minilibrary was constructed from DOP-PCR products using microdissected Y-chromosomes of Indian muntjac as DNA templates. Two microclones designated as IM-Y4-52 and IM-Y5-7 were obtained from negative screening of all three cervid satellite DNAs (satellites I, II, and IV). These two microclones were 295 and 382 bp in size, respectively, and shared ∼70%(More)
We retracted information from a computerized databank which contains the cytogenetic findings of 17,000 patients with leukemia and lymphoma. Cytogenetic data from patients with solid tumors were compiled from Dr. Mitelman's catalogue on “Chromosome aberrations in cancer”. We compared the observed distribution of breaks in chromosome bands involved in(More)
Chromosome analysing using quinacrine fluorescence was performed on 930 consecutive newborn infants. The total incidence of major chromosome aberrations including numerical changes of the sex chromosomes, and structural changes of autosomes, was 0.54%. Incidences of XYY (0.4%) and XXY (0.2%) were relatively higher as compared to other studies. About 0.75%(More)
A comprehensive cytogenetic characterization of the unusually large reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) sex chromosomes is presented for the purpose of studying the evolution of these atypical gonosomes. Sex chromosome idiograms were constructed from G-banded and C-banded chromosomes to illustrate the relative amounts and locations of euchromatin and(More)
