The red wolf (Canis rufus), native to much of the southeastern United States, is endangered by man's activities and by hybridization with other species of the genus Canis. The absence of diagnostic morphological markers to distinguish the red wolf from its hybrids has led to the application of the methods of biochemical genetics to this problem. The finding of a unique electrophoretically determined allele with a distribution congruent with the geographical distribution of the remaining red… Expand
Populational genetic structure of free-living maned wolves (Chrysocyon brachyurus) determined by proteic markers.
TLDR
The polymorphism degree and heterozygosity level (intralocus and average) estimated in this study were similar to those detected by other authors for maned wolves and other species of wild free-living canids. Expand
Genetic Diversity among Stag Beetles in the Japan Islands − the Case of Dorcus titanus
The breeding of stag beetles has come to be very popular in Japan, and over one million exotic stag beetles are imported into Japan every year. This unusual boom has even led to criminal smuggling ofExpand
Clinial genetic variation at enzyme loci in bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) from the western United States
Five polymorphic enzyme loci of about 50 sampled were discovered in blood extracts of bald eagles from Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and Arizona, representing the first biochemical genetic variationExpand
Genetic variability in natural populations of the gray wolf, Canis lupus
TLDR
The pattern of variability of gray wolves from northwestern Canada supports the view of a large panmictic population resulting from extensive movements of individuals and packs and from natural and human impacts on pack structure and formation. Expand
Biological Invasion Caused by Commercialization of Stag Beetles in Japan
TLDR
The molecular genetic analysis of populations of Dorcus titanus, which is a major native species, indicates signs of genetic introgression by exotic strains imported from South-east Asia, and investigation of stag beetles imported and sold shows that a lot of mites are coming into Japan attached to the beetles. Expand
Genic variation in the coyote, Canis latrans, in Tennessee, U.S.A.
TLDR
Results of F-statistics indicated a significant degree of population differentiation at four loci (Gdh, Idh-1, Mdh-2, 6-Pgd) and showed C. latrans to be genetically homogenous in that portion of the range investigated. Expand
A genome-wide perspective on the evolutionary history of enigmatic wolf-like canids.
TLDR
It is found that these enigmatic canids are highly admixed varieties derived from gray wolves and coyotes, respectively, and divergent genomic history suggests that they do not have a shared recent ancestry as proposed by previous researchers. Expand
SYMPATRIC NORTH AMERICAN GRAY WOLF POPULATIONS
TLDR
The results demonstrate that closely related species of mobile terrestrial vertebrates have the potential for extensive genetic exchange when ecological conditions change suddenly. Expand
Polymorphism of transferrin and esterase in Alaskan wolves: evidence of close molecular homology with the dog.
TLDR
Alaskan wolves were studied with regard to transferrin (Tf) and esterase (ArE) polymorphism, comparing the phenotypic band patterns with those of selected Norwegian dogs, which suggests the occurrence of the same two common Tf alleles in the wolf as in the dog. Expand
Whole Genome Association Study to Detect Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms for Behavior in Sapsaree Dog (Canis familiaris)
TLDR
Strong genetic and phenotypic correlations were observed between nerve stability, affability and adaptability in Sapsaree dogs, and significant SNPs need to be verified using other samples, so as to be utilized to improve behavior traits via marker-assisted selection in the Saparee population.

An investigation of the products of 53 gene loci in three species of wild Canidae: Canis lupus, Canis latrans, and Canis familiaris
TLDR
An investigation of inter- and intraspecific variation in three small populations of wild Canidae—wolf, coyote, and dingo— found the level of intra- and interspecies variation was compatible with that found in man. Expand
THE TAXONOMIC STATUS OF WILD CANIS (CANIDAE) IN THE SOUTH CENTRAL UNITED STATES
TLDR
This paper is an analysis of the relationship that currently exists between coyotes and red wolves in the south central United States (Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas) based largely on skull morphology. Expand
Genetic Polymorphism of Tetrazolium Oxidase in Dogs
TLDR
Two alleles, ToA and ToB, determine a genetic polymorphism of tetrazolium oxidase in canine erythrocytes, and the electrophoretic tetrazole oxidase isozyme pattern of Canis latrans closely resembles the tetrazolate A pattern of canis familiaris. Expand
Multiple Character Analysis of Canis lupus, latrans, and familiaris, With a Discussion of the Relationships of Canis niger
TLDR
A multiple character analysis was undertaken of a broadly representative sample of three species: Canis lupus (wolf), C. latrans (coyote), and C. familiaris (dog), providing a basis for the identification of skulls not obviously distinguishable by size or other diagnostic characters. Expand

GENETIC VARIATION OF RED BLOOD CELL ENZYMES IN THE DOG: USE OF SOLUBLE GLUTAMIC OXALOACETIC TRANSAMINASE AS PROOF OF CHIMERISM
TLDR
A variant of soluble glutamic oxalaocetic transaminase (S-GOT) was found to occur with high frequency in dogs of the Basenji breed, and infrequent variants of indophenol oxidase and acid phosphatase were found in other breeds. Expand
Electrophoretic studies on the blood proteins of domestic dogs and other Canidae.
TLDR
This report gives a review of electrophoretic studies on dogs and describes the zymograms of 18 enzymes and 3 proteins in blood from dogs and their relatives, representing 10 different breeds. Expand
Polymorphism at the glucosephosphate isomerase locus in the dog.
TLDR
A polymorphism of the enzyme glucosephosphate isomerase (GPI) in canine red blood cells is reported and four out of 92 dogs examined appeared to be heterozygous at this locus. Expand
Polymorphism of red cell acid phosphatase in dogs.
TLDR
In fresh red cell haemolysates from Labrador retriever dogs three acid phosphatase phenotypes were found by starch gel electrophoresis, consistent with the theory that the Pac phenotypes are controlled by two codominant, autosomal alleles, designated PacF and PacS. Expand
