Loci from human chromosome 12 were mapped in cattle to compare the gene order between species. Polymorphisms were detected in cattle in six loci that has been mapped with high precision in humans. Four of these loci, LALBA, SLC2A3, SYT1 , and TPI1 , mapped to bovine chromosome 5, and one, PLA2G1B...
Myotonia is a clinical sign characterized by a delay in skeletal muscle relaxation following electrical or mechanical stimulation. A series of related miniature schnauzer dogs with congenital myotonic myopathy were studied. A composite pedigree of six affected litters and the results of a planned...
We examined the question of whether the genetic diversity contained within germplasm and cultivar collections of pecan ( Carya illinoinensis (Wangenh.) K. Koch) is representative of that found in natural populations of the species. To this end, levels of genetic variation were compared within and...
