Abstract

A part of mouse Zfy-2 sequence was synthesized and used to screen a genomic library of the spinous country-rat (Tokudaia osimensis spp., 2n = 45). An isolated clone had the C-terminal region of Zfy, which consisted of 1190 bp, encoded 336 amino acid residues, and harbored 11 out of 13 zinc finger motifs. With this as a probe, a bovine testis cDNA library was screened. Two ZFX clones were isolated and their sequences combined. The short sequence, lacking part of the 5′ upstream region, was amplified by PCR or RT-PCR, cloned, and sequenced. A full-length ZFX was constructed by combining these three sequences. The bovine ZFX consisted of 5328 bp and encoded 800 amino acid residues, which contained 13 zinc finger motifs. ZFX was used as a probe for fluorescence in situ hybridization and was mapped to Xq34, different from its previously reported site at Xq21–q231. A SINE (short interspersed nuclear element) sequence consisting of 188 bp was found close to the end of the 3′-untranslated region of ZFX. The SINE sequence hybridized to all bovine chromosomes. ZFY is highly homologous with ZFX and, as a result, ZFY could be mapped simultaneously. ZFY was mapped to the distal region of the short arm of the Y Chromosome (Chr) (Yp13), contradicting the previously reported position Yq1. Ovine and caprine ZFY were also mapped with bovine ZFX. Both were mapped to the distal region of the short arm of the Y Chr (Yp12–p13). Ovine ZFX was mapped to a region close to the centromere of the X Chr (Xq13).
