Abstract

Cultured leukocytes from an adult domestic bull, an adult domestic heifer, and 2 young bison calves (a ♂ and a ♀) were examined. In both bison and cattle the modal diploid number of chromosomes was 60 (58 autosomes and 2 sex chromosomes) in each sex. The autosomes of the bison calves were...

Abstract

A cytogenetic mechanism for the association of polledness and intersexuality in dairy goats has been proposed in the light of existing information on intersexes and sex determination. On the basis of the marked sexual dimorphism for horn in the more primitive members of Bovidae and the strong...

Abstract

The Y-chromosomal gene TSPY (testis-specific protein Y-encoded) is probably involved in early spermatogenesis and has a variable copy number in different mammalian species. Analysis of bovine BAC clones leads to an estimate of 90 TSPY loci on the bovine Y chromosome. Half of these loci (TSPY-M1 and ...

Abstract

The nuclear mitochondrial pseudogenes (numts), originated from mtDNA insertions into the nuclear genome, have been detected to exist in many species. However, the distribution of numts in cattle nuclear genome yet has not been fully reported. By referring to the whole cattle mtDNA sequence and to...

Abstract

The ancestry of New World cattle was investigated through the analysis of mitochondrial and Y chromosome variation in Creoles from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Paraguay and the United States of America. Breeds that influenced the Creoles, such as Iberian native, British and Zebu, were also studied....

Abstract

A new sequence-tagged site (STS) was identified within intron 26 of the bovine USP9Y gene, showing an 81-base pair insertion (g.76439_76440ins81 in sequence with GenBank accession FJ195366) able to distinguish Y2 and Y3 Bos Y haplogroups from Y1. Moreover, four Y3-specific sequence variants allow a ...

Abstract

Flow cytometry is a widely used application for validating the accuracy of sperm sexing. However, this method is relatively expensive and requires considerable technical support. An alternative method employing simpler technology at low cost could be suitable for the evaluation of bovine semen in...

Abstract

Genetic conservation on the level of genes from syntenic groups enables the use of molecular probes obtained from one species of animals to detect homologous DNA segments in different species. The aim of this study was to identify heterosomes in aoudad (Ammotragus lervia) by comparative...

Abstract

A total of 80 samples were collected to analyze the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and Y chromosome genetic diversity of two main Portuguese Lidia bovine populations and clarify their genetic relationships with Spanish Lidia lineages. A 521-bp D-loop fragment was sequenced in 40 animals belonging to...
