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)
UNLABELLED Three-dimensional fluorescence in situ hybridization (3D-FISH) is used to study the organization and the positioning of chromosomes or specific sequences such as genes or RNA in cell nuclei. Many different programs (commercial or free) allow image analysis for 3D-FISH experiments. One of the more efficient open-source programs for automatically(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)
It has been shown that a major gene, called RN, is responsible for the RTN technological yield, a meat quality porcine trait. Experimental families informative for the segregation of RN gene were constituted from animals belonging to the Laconie composite line. We have previously mapped the RN gene to Chromosome (Chr) 15 (Milan et al. Genet. Sel. Evol. 27,(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)
Four homeobox genes that belong to the four homeobox gene clusters known in mammals have been regionally assigned to four distinct porcine chromosomes in conserved regions between human and pig. HOXA11, HOXB6, HOXC8, and HOXD4 genes were mapped by radioactive in situ hybridization to porcine Chromosomes (Chrs) 18q21–24 (with a secondary signal in 16ql4–21),(More)
The first compilation of the pig gene map was published in 1984 by Echard and contained only 36 genes organized into 14 linkage and syntenic groups. Among these 14 groups, only 4 were assigned to a chromosome, but no regional localization was determined. Since that time, two main techniques, in situ hybridization and somatic cell genetics, were developed to(More)
Recently two main genetic maps [Rohrer et al. Genetics 136, 231 (1994); Archibald et al. Mamm. Genome 6, 157 (1995)] and a cytogenetic map [Yerle et al. Mamm. Genome 6,175 (1995)] for the porcine genome were reported. As only a very few microsatellites are located on the cytogenetic map, it appears to be important to increase the relationships between the(More)
To increase the number of Type I markers that are directly informative for comparative mapping, 58 anchorage markers, TOASTs (Traced Orthologous Amplified Sequence Tags), were mapped in pig. With specific consensus primers, 76 TOASTs were tested in pig: 50 were regionally localized in pig on a somatic cell hybrid panel (SCHP), and 51 were mapped on the(More)
