Direct detection of fluorescent in situ hybridization signals on R-banded chromosomes stained with propidium iodide is a rapid and efficient method for constructing cytogenetic maps for species with R-banded standard karyotypes. In this paper, our aim is to establish an R-banded rabbit karyotype nomenclature that is in total agreement with the 1981 G-banded standard nomenclature. For this purpose, we have produced new GTG- and RBG-banded mid-metaphase karyotypes and an updated version of… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

( transgenic rabbit / lymphocyte / c-metaphase / chromosome / aneuploidy / G-banding )
It is demonstrated that transgenic rabbits have a higher fre- quency of numerical chromosomal aberrations in their peripheral blood lymphocytes than normal rabbits, but without apparent deleterious effects on health or reproduction.
Construction of a cytogenetically anchored microsatellite map in rabbit
The aim was to isolate over 300 new and regularly distributed (TG)n or (TC)n rabbit microsatellites, the first step toward the construction of an integrated cytogenetic and genetic map based on microsatelliteites homogeneously anchored to the rabbit genome.
133 new gene localizations on the rabbit cytogenetic map
This study presents the localization of new genes on all rabbit chromosomes except OCU20 and OCUY and some preliminary data on the rabbit/human comparative map and uses cDNAs present in the public databases to determine intra-exon primers used to screen the three-genome equivalent BAC library.
Localization of human coagulation factor VIII (hFVIII) in transgenic rabbit by FISH-TSA: identification of transgene copy number and transmission to the next generation.
The presented FISH-TSA method provides strong signals without any interspecies reactivity in chromosomal localization of the hFVIII human transgene in F2 and F3 generation of transgenic rabbits.
Aneuploidy in the transgenic rabbit.
It is demonstrated that transgenic rabbits have a higher frequency of numerical chromosomal aberrations in their peripheral blood lymphocytes than normal rabbits, but without apparent deleterious effects on health or reproduction.
A first-generation microsatellite-based integrated genetic and cytogenetic map for the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) and localization of angora and albino.
This first generation genetic/cytogenetic map will help gene identification and quantitative trait loci mapping projects in rabbit and help verify the location of angora and albino on chromosomes 15q and 1q, respectively.
Expanded comparative mapping between man and rabbit and detection of a new conserved segment between HSA22 and OCU4
The localisation of 102 new genes resulting in good coverage of the rabbit genome and an eight-fold enrichment of the gene map and a new conserved segment between rabbit chromosome 4q15.3 and part of human chromosome 22 improved the comparative map with the human genome.
Tracking genome organization in rodents by Zoo-FISH
The results together with published data on the Sciuridae allow the formulation of a putative rodent ancestral karyotypes that is thought to comprise the following 26 human chromosomal segments and/or segmental associations, providing insights into the likely composition of the ancestral rodent karyotype and an improved understanding of placental genome evolution.
Y-chromosomal markers for the European brown hare (Lepus europaeus, Pallas 1778)
A set of ten Y-chromosomal markers for the European brown hare which comprises of three overlapping fragments spanning over the sex-determining region Y, five microsatellite loci (LeMS-Y), and two introns of the Y-linked zinc finger protein (LeZFY) can function as internal positive PCR control in molecular sexing.
Tools of the trade: diagnostics and research in domestic animal cytogenetics
The most common cytogenetic techniques routinely adopted in laboratories for producing high-resolution banding on prometaphase stage chromosomes, from synchronized or nonsynchronized blood cultures, are described.


Localization by FISH of the 31 Texas nomenclature type I markers to both Q- and R-banded bovine chromosomes
A series of 31 marker genes (one per chromosome) were localized precisely to both Q- and R-banded bovine chromosomes by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), as a contribution to the revised
Fourteen chromosomal localizations and an update of the cytogenetic map of the rabbit
Results indicate that especially BAC clones are a valuable tool for cytogenetic mapping, and links are provided between the genetic and physical maps of the rabbit genome.
Construction of a rabbit bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) library: application to the mapping of the major histocompatibility complex to position 12q1.1
A library that currently represents three haploid genome equivalents of the rabbit genome, despite a limited genome coverage, has already proved its efficiency to start working on infrequently studied species.
Mapping of single-copy DNA sequences on human chromosomes by in situ hybridization with biotinylated probes: enhancement of detection sensitivity by intensified-fluorescence digital-imaging microscopy.
Two single-copy DNA segments were labeled with biotin-labeled dUTP (Bio11-dUTP) and hybridized to human chromosomes and directly mapped on chromosomes by using classical fluorescence microscopy and a microchannel-plate-intensified video camera to detect very weak fluorescent spots on chromosomes.
Complete homology maps of the rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) and human by reciprocal chromosome painting
Many conserved chromosome segments found previously in other mammals (e.g. cat, pig, cattle, Indian muntjac) were also found to be conserved in rabbit chromosomes.
Chromosomal localization of the ovine beta-casein gene by non-isotopic in situ hybridization and R-banding.
The ovine beta-casein gene (CNS2) has been mapped to a specific chromosome band using nonradioactive in situ hybridization and simultaneous fluorescent R-banding using pTZ-E4 and biotin-11-dUTP.
Identification by banding techniques of the chromosomes of the domestic rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus L.).
The G-. Q- and R-banding patterns of the domestic rabbit chromosomes are described and verified by representative karyotypes and photoelectric recordings. The chromosomes, arranged according to the
The high resolution RBG-banded karyotype of Oryctolagus cuniculus. Comparison between different classifications of landmarks and bands.
Representative high resolution RBG-banded haploid karyotypes of Oryctolagus cuniculus and corresponding idiograms at the 550 band stage are presented. Classification of landmarks and bands based on
The high-resolution GTG-banding pattern of rabbit chromosomes.
A cell synchronization technique allowed the high-resolution GTG-banding pattern of rabbit chromosomes to be determined. A karyotype of the late-prophase 622-band stage is presented.
