Physical ordering of six YACs from the RN region in pigs. Academic Article uri icon


  • Six YAC clones representing five microsatellite markers from the RN region were mapped by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) on pig metaphase chromosomes and their relative order was determined by pairwise multicolour FISH. Two of the microsatellites viz., Sw120 and Sw936 flank RN as well as the remaining three microsatellites Sw1683, Sw2083 and Sw1309. The results assigned the RN locus to the distal part of the 15q25 band. The linear order of the microsatellites was compared with the available linkage mapping data.
