Physical mapping of CSF2RA, ANT3 and STS on the pseudoautosomal region of bovine chromosome X. Academic Article uri icon


  • The pseudoautosomal region (PAR) of bovine chromosome X (BTA X) has a particularly low representation of genes and markers, making comparative gene mapping in this region difficult. We describe the localization of three genes, colony-stimulating factor 2 receptor alpha (CSF2RA), ADP/ATP translocase 3 (ANT3) and steroid sulphatase (STS) on PAR of BTA X using a 5000 rad whole-genome radiation hybrid panel. The relationship of these genes to a number of previously mapped simple sequence repeat (microsatellite) markers is determined by physical and radiation hybrid mapping methods. The resulting radiation hybrid map resolves a discrepancy between the two major bovine linkage maps in the PAR of BTA X.
