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)
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 micro-satellites are located on the cytogenetic map, it appears to be important to increase the relationships between the(More)
In this study we examined homologies between 1,735 porcine microsatellites and human sequence. For 1,710 microsatellites we directly used the sequence flanking the repeat available in GenBank. For a set of 305 microsatellites, a BAC library was screened and end-sequencing provided 461 additional sequences. Altogether 2,171 porcine sequences were tentatively(More)
A comparative map of human chromosome 12 (HSA 12) and pig chromosome 5 (SSC 5) was constructed using ten pig expressed sequence tags (ESTs). These ESTs were isolated from primary granulosa cell cultures by differential display (EST b10b), or from a granulosa cDNA library (VIIIE1, DRIM, N*9, RIIID2 and RVIC1) or from a small intestine cDNA library (ATPSB,(More)
Intersexuality has been reported in pigs and investigations are in progress to identify and physically map the genes involved in sex-reversal. In this study we have mapped on porcine chromosomes seven genes which might be implicated in this developmental pathway. Four genes were mapped by radioactive in situ hybridization: AMH (Anti-Müllerian Hormone) and(More)
Neutrophils are essential components of the innate immune system due to their ability to kill and phagocytose invading microbes. They possess a lobulated nucleus and are capable of extensive and complex changes in response to bacterial stimulation. The aim of our study was to investigate whether the 3D nuclear organization of porcine neutrophils was(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)
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 16q14-21),(More)
