A panel of 27 pig x rodent somatic cell hybrids was produced and characterized cytogenetically. The first step of this study consisted of hybridizing a SINE probe to GTG-banded metaphases of each hybrid clone in order to count and identify the normal pig chromosomes and to detect rearranged ones. The second step consisted of using the DNA of each clone as a(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the correspondence between human and porcine chromosome fragments using whole chromosome painting probes from both species in heterologous hybridization experiments (bidirectional heterologous chromosome painting). Bidirectional experiments allow the determination of segment-to-segment homologies between the(More)
We have developed a panel of 152 whole-genome radiation hybrids by fusing irradiated diploid pig lymphocytes or fibroblasts with recipient hamster permanent cells. The number and size of the porcine chromosome fragments retained in each hybrid clone were checked by fluorescence in situ hybridization with a SINE probe or by primed in situ labeling (PRINS)(More)
A high proportion of purebred Hampshire pigs carries the dominant RN- mutation, which causes high glycogen content in skeletal muscle. The mutation has beneficial effects on meat content but detrimental effects on processing yield. Here, it is shown that the mutation is a nonconservative substitution (R200Q) in the PRKAG3 gene, which encodes a(More)
Large-scale sequencing of cDNAs from numerous tissues is currently being performed within the framework of the Human Genome Project. These expressed sequence tags (ESTs) are then mapped on a radiation hybrid panel to produce a high-resolution map of human genes. In this report, we estimate the efficiency of mapping these ESTs in the pig. A total of 344(More)
A quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis of growth and fatness data from a three-generation experimental cross between Meishan (MS) and Large White (LW) pig breeds is presented. Six boars and 23 F1 sows, the progeny of six LW boars and six MS sows, produced 530 F2 males and 573 F2 females. Nine growth traits, i.e. body weight at birth and at 3, 10, 13, 17(More)
On the porcine genome, the region surrounding the Major Histocompatibility Complex, also called Swine Leukocyte Antigens (SLA), is of particular interest not only owing to its role in the control of immune response, but also because of its influence on many traits such as growth, fatness, and meat quality. To help in the identification of responsible genes,(More)
The porcine gene for luteinizing hormone/choriogonadotropin receptor (LHCGR) was localized to chromosome 3q2.2----q2.3 using radioactive and nonradioactive in situ hybridization. A computer-assisted image-analysis system was developed which facilitated detection of the position of silver grains and fluorescent spots on the chromosomes after in situ(More)
SUMMARY The INRA-Minnesota Porcine Radiation Hybrid (IMpRH) Server provides both a mapping tool (IMpRH mapping tool) and a database (IMpRH database) of officially submitted results. The mapping tool permits the mapping of a new marker relatively to markers previously mapped on the IMpRH panel. The IMpRH database is the official database for submission of(More)
