Mapping of the interferon gamma (IFNG) gene in river and swamp buffaloes by in situ hybridization.
Additional Document Info
In situ hybridization technique was applied using a tritiated (3H) bovine IFNG cDNA probe to regionally localize the gene on river and swamp buffalo chromosomes. The hybridization signals peaked on the 4q23-->q26 bands in river buffaloes and on the 1p24-->p26 bands in swamp buffaloes. The results are compared to the localization of the same gene in cattle. Possible evolutionary conservation in the Bovidae is discussed.
