Abstract

The highly repetitive DNA sequence of centromeric heterochromatin is an effective molecular cytogenetic marker for investigating genomic compartmentalization between macrochromosomes and microchromosomes in birds. We isolated four repetitive sequence families of centromeric heterochromatin from...

Abstract

After domestication 11 000 years ago in Asia Minor, the goat followed human migration to Europe and Asia. It was then introduced in Africa and is now raised all over the world. In this study, we exploited a dataset composed of 54 000 SNPs (Illumina goat DNA chip) to analyze the genetic diversity of ...

Abstract

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) insertions have been detected in the nuclear genome of many eukaryotes. These sequences are pseudogenes originated by horizontal transfer of mtDNA fragments into the nuclear genome, producing nuclear DNA sequences of mitochondrial origin (numt). In this study we determined ...

Abstract

Distant hybridization occurs widely in fishes and is a useful strategy to produce different ploidy offsprings. In this study, we obtained androgenetic blunt snout bream (2n=48, ADBSB), triploid hybrids (3n=124, 3nJB) and tetraploid hybrids (4n=148, 4nJB) from the hybridization of two species from...

Abstract

Genome size (C-value) and the percentage of adenine and thymine nucleotides in the genome (AT content) are fundamental characteristics of every species, and very important parameters in molecular cytogenetic and phylogenic studies, and for the progress of whole-genome sequencing. In this study, the ...

Abstract

Mammalian centromeres are associated with highly repetitive DNA (satellite DNA), which has so far hindered molecular analysis of this chromatin domain. Centromeres are epigenetically specified, and binding of the CENPA protein is their main determinant. In previous work, we described the first...

Abstract

Here, for the first time, we describe the karyotype of Myiopsitta monachus (Psittacidae, Arini). We found 2n=48, corresponding to the lowest diploid number observed in Neotropical Psittaciformes so far, with an uncommonly large W chromosome homomorphic to the Z. In order to better understand the...

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...

Abstract

We described genome-wide screening and characterization of microsatellites in the swamp eel genome. A total of 99,293 microsatellite loci were identified in the genome with an overall density of 179 microsatellites per megabase of genomic sequences. The dinucleotide microsatellites were the most...

Abstract

In order to develop microsatellites for Muscovy ducks and offer a reference for the selection of microsatellites, microsatellites developed in Peking ducks were amplified in Muscovy ducks. Genotypes were detected by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Of 33 detected microsatellites, a total of 29...
