Cytidine monophospho-N-acetylneuraminic acid hydroxylase (CMAH) mutations associated with the domestic cat AB blood group
TLDR
Mutations in type B cats likely disrupt the gene function of CMAH, leading to a predominance of NeuAc, the first blood group gene identified outside of non-human primates and humans. Expand
The ascent of cat breeds: genetic evaluations of breeds and worldwide random-bred populations.
TLDR
The diaspora of the modern cat was traced with microsatellite markers from the presumed site of domestication to distant regions of the world, and pure breeding was associated with a loss of genetic diversity; however, this loss did not correlate with breed popularity or age. Expand
An international parentage and identification panel for the domestic cat (Felis catus)
TLDR
An internationally tested, microsatellite-based parentage and identification panel for the domestic cat (Felis catus) has a power of exclusion comparable to panels used in other species, ranging from 90.08% to 99.79% across breeds and 99.87% in random-bred cat populations. Expand
Genetic polymorphism of six plasma proteins in the domestic cat.
TLDR
The mongrels and Persians showed a high degree of polymorphism at most of the loci whereas the Birmans exhibited much less variation. Expand
A Complex Three Breakpoint Translocation in the Domestic Pig
TLDR
A structural rearrangement involving three autosomes, numbers 2, 4 and 15, was transmitted from an A.I. boar of Finnish Landrace breed to its offspring, and it had normal sexual functions and semen characteristics. Expand
Three new plasma protein polymorphisms in domestic foxes, detected by a simple method of 2D horizontal electrophoresis.
TLDR
Plasma samples of 270 foxes from 45 complete families were analysed and genetic polymorphism of three plasma proteins, tentatively designated prealbumin (Pr), postalbumin 1 (Pa1), and pretransferin 1(Prt1), was observed, showing monomorphic for Pr and Prt1 and showed a scarce Pa1 polymorphism in silver foxes.

Genetic polymorphism of plasma α1B-glycoprotein and transferrin in arctic and silver foxes
TLDR
The arctic fox, silver fox and their hybrids could be clearly differentiated from one another by their plasma protein patterns obtained by the PAGE method. Expand
A partially deficient and atypical equine transferrin variant, TF N
Summary A new, partially deficient and phenotypicallyatypical transferrin variant, TF N, was detectedin sera of a number of Finnhorses belonging toone family. The variant was inherited codomi-nantly.Expand
