Abstract

With the advance of high-throughput genotyping technologies, it is possible to estimate the pattern of linkage disequilibrium (LD) and haplotype block structure at genome wide level in farm animals. Understanding LD characteristics and haplotype blocks can provide useful information to guide genome ...

Abstract

The evolutionary clade comprising Nanger, Eudorcas, Gazella, and Antilope, defined by an X;BTA5 translocation, is noteworthy for the many autosomal Robertsonian fusions that have driven the chromosome number variation from 2n=30 observed in Antilope cervicapra, to the 2n=58 in present Eudorcas...

Abstract

The gene order on the X chromosome of eutherians is generally highly conserved, although an increase in the rate of rearrangement has been reported in the rodent lineage. Conservation of the X chromosome is thought to be caused by selection related to maintenance of dosage compensation. However, we ...

Abstract

Cholesterol deficiency, a new autosomal recessive inherited genetic defect in Holstein cattle, has been recently reported to have an influence on the rearing success of calves. The affected animals show unresponsive diarrhea accompanied by hypocholesterolemia and usually die within the first weeks...

Abstract

A GTG-banding comparison between the chromosomes of gaur (Bos gaurus hubbacki, BGA, 2n=56) and those of domestic cattle (Bos taurus, BTA, 2n=60) was performed to establish chromosome homoeologies or differences between the two species. The two biarmed chromosomes of gaur (BGA1 and BGA2) were...

Abstract

A taxonomic division of the family Bovidae (Artiodactyla) is difficult and the evolutionary relationships among most bovid subfamilies remain uncertain. In this study, we isolated the cattle satellite I clone BTREP15 (1.715 satellite DNA family) and autosomal centromeric DNAs of members of ten...

Abstract

By comparing high-coverage and high-quality whole genome sequence assemblies it is now possible to reconstruct putative ancestral progenitor karyotypes, here called protokaryotypes. For this study we used the recently described electronic chromosome painting technique (E-painting) to reconstruct...

Abstract

Repetitive DNA in the mammalian genome is a valuable record and marker for evolution, providing information about the order and driving forces related to evolutionary events. The evolutionarily young 1.709 satellite IV DNA family is present near the centromeres of many chromosomes in the Bovidae....

Abstract

The early phylogeny of the 137 species in the Bovidae family is difficult to resolve. Knowledge of the evolution and relationships of the tribes would facilitate comparative mapping, help understand chromosomal evolution patterns and assist breeding and domestication strategies. The study of the...

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...
