Synteny mapping of human chromosome 8 loci in cattle. Academic Article uri icon


  • Four genes having homologous loci on the short arm of human chromosome 8 have been mapped to two different bovine syntenic groups. The gene coding for the tissue-type plasminogen activator mapped with GSR, a human chromosome 8 marker, of syntenic group U14 while lipoprotein lipase and the medium and light neurofilament polypeptide genes were shown to be syntenic with the human chromosome 9 marker GGTB2 of syntenic group U18.
