NAGRP carries comparative maps of human-mouse-cattle: Human chr 20p genes mapped on cattle chr Comparing rat chr 3 to mouse chr 2, one sees similar genes to those of mouse-human: Andy Lawchicken genome expert at Roslin writes on 17 Dec 98, "The prion gene has not yet been mapped in chicken.
If it were, the preferred symbol would be the same as the human where homology was established, Prnp. That's the nomenclature ruling that we follow. Dr John Williamscoordinator of a study to associate prion genotype with BSE susceptibility in cattle, may be able to provide current information about prion gene synteny in cattle.
The conserved synteny expert is Dr Dave Burt. He has conducted a major study of conserved syntenies between chicken, human and mouse. Chicken genome is more closely related to the human than the mouse is because the rodent lineage seems to have scrambled its genome more extensively than anything else.
Anim Genet Aug;29 4: Genetic and physical data on the chicken karyotype are presented in relation to one another.
A summary of current knowledge was kindly supplied by DWB on 5 Jan There was an attempt to map PRNP in chicken, but no suitable polymorphism was found. The internal repeat did vary in length, but not in the mapping cross. A genomic clone would allow a FISH physical map.
The mapping of these genes led to the identification of two new regions of conserved synteny between human and chicken and confirmed other previously identified regions of conserved synteny between human and chicken [ Groenen MA ] An analysis of CKbeta4GT-I and CKbeta4GT-II genomic clones established that the intron positions within the coding region are conserved when compared with each other, and these positions are identical to the mouse and human beta4GT genes.
CKbeta4GT-I maps to chicken chromosome Z in a region of conserved synteny with the centromeric region of mouse chromosome 4 and human chromosome 9p CKbeta4GT-II maps to a region of chicken chromosome 8 that exhibits conserved synteny with human chromosome 1p. An inspection of the current human gene map of expressed sequence tags reveals that there is a gene noted to be highly similar to beta4GT located in this syntenic region on human chromosome 1p.
Because both the CKbeta4GT-I and CKbeta4GT-II gene lineages are detectable in mammals, duplication of the ancestral beta4-galactosyltransferase gene occurred over million years ago in an ancestral species common to both mammals and birds.
The chicken insulin-like growth factor 1 gene has been assigned to the short arm of chromosome 1 near the centromere between the IGF1 and GAPD loci.
Comparison of the genetic maps of chicken and other vertebrates reveals a highly conserved syntenic group, including the GAPD-IGF1 loci The gene structure for chicken CP49 gene is presented. It differs from the human CP49 gene with the presence of an extra exon in helix IB and the apparent loss of an intron, intron H.
John Postlethwait writes on 4 Jan 98, "I am working on a paper which will give such a comparative view of all zfish chromosomes. In principle the zfish prion gene should go to LG17 or 20 as you suspect. These are duplicated chromosomes that arose in the genome duplication event that we suspect happened before or early in the teleost radiation.
Cytogenet Cell Genet ;81 These chromosomes and bands were homoeologous among the four species, confirming the high degree of gene and chromosome banding conservation among bovids.The entire coding region of the PRNP gene was amplified and sequenced in buffaloes (32 Dehong buffaloes, 26 Guangnan buffaloes, 10 Guangxi buffaloes, 27 Guangdong buffaloes, 14 Chongqing buffaloes, 10 Guizhou buffaloes, 11 Fuan buffaloes, and 3 Hainan buffaloes) and 22 Chinese yaks, as described in our previous study (Zhao et al., ).
Genotype is the largest influencing factor in the development of phenotype. But even for two organisms with identical genotype s (i.e.
identical twins), they will not have identical phenotypes. the sum total of the organism's genetic information. The aim of this study was to genotype the Anatolian, Murrah, and crossbred buffaloes according to 23 and 12 bp indel polymorphism of the PRNP gene, expand the data for the PRNP genotype of the Anatolian water buffalo, determine of the Murrah and crossbred buffaloes PRNP indel polymorphisms for the first time, and compare allele/genotype.
Genotype and allele frequencies of the Gayal PRNP promoter and intron 1 variants were analyzed manually and deviation from Hardy– Weinberg (H–W) equilibrium was calculated using the chi-squared test (X 2) (Oztabak et al. ; Xi et al. ). Furthermore, the assignment of PRNP to river buffalo [prion gene not yet sequenced] and goat chromosomes allowed us to indirectly assign the bovine syntenic group U11 to specific chromosomes, since it is the first in situ localization on BBU14 and CHI PRNP examination provided conflicting results from previous bison PRNP studies, and genotype ..
44 2. Observed PRNP exon 3 allelic and genotypic frequencies in individuals from elk, bison, and buffalo are all at high risk for developing this disease through infection with various species of Brucella.
