Chromosomal localization of HSP70 genes in cattle. Academic Article uri icon


  • Five genomic clones representing three HSP70 genes of cattle were biotin labeled and independently hybridized to cattle chromosomes. Fluorescence in situ hybridization localized HSP70-2 to Chromosome (Chr) 23 band 22 (the BoLA region), HSP70-3 to Chr 10 band 34, and HSP70-4 to Chr 3 band 13. Since HSP70-1, a fourth HSP70 gene, is tightly linked with HSP70-2 and the BOLA, HSP70-1 was also localized to Chr 23 band 22. The localization of HSP70-4 is the first assignment of a cattle U6 marker; thus, this entire syntenic group is tentatively placed in cattle Chr 3.
