A comparative map of bovine chromosome 19 based on a combination of mapping on a bacterial artificial chromosome scaffold map, a whole genome radiation hybrid panel and the human draft sequence. Academic Article uri icon


  • We have constructed a medium density physical map of bovine chromosome 19 using a combination of mapping loci on both a bovine bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) scaffold map and a whole genome radiation hybrid (WGRH) panel. The resulting map contains 70 loci spanning the length of bovine chromosome 19. Three contiguous groups of BACs were identified on the basis of multiple loci mapping to individual BAC clones. Bovine chromosome 19 was found in this study to be comprised almost entirely from regions of human chromosome 17, with a small region putatively assigned to human chromosome 10. Fourteen breakpoints between the bovine and human chromosomes were detected, with a possibility of five more based on ordering of the WGRH map.
