Somatic cell mapping of the genes for anti-mllerian hormone and osteonectin in cattle: identification of a new bovine syntenic group. Academic Article uri icon


  • DNA probes from the bovine anti-Mllerian hormone and osteonectin genes were hybridized onto Southern blots containing DNAs from cow-hamster and cow-mouse hybrid somatic cell lines segregating bovine chromosomes. Bovine anti-Mllerian hormone and osteonectin loci were fully concordant with each other in 96 hybrid somatic cell lines, but were not concordant with any other bovine syntenic group described to date. As such, these two genes represent another syntenic group in cattle, bringing to 27 the number of autosomal syntenic groups identified thus far.
