Assignment of the bovine immunoglobulin gamma heavy chain (IGHG) gene to chromosome 21q24 by in situ hybridization. Academic Article uri icon


  • By the use of in situ hybridization, the bovine immunoglobulin gamma heavy chain (IGHG) gene was assigned to chromosome 21q24. Fifteen percent of the total grains were scored on chromosome 21, with about 65 percent of these grains located on the q24 band. The present results confirm a previous synteny study and provide the precise chromosomal localization of this gene in the cattle genome.
