Comparative mapping of BTA15 and HSA11 including a region containing a QTL for meat tenderness

Comparative mapping of BTA15 and HSA11 including a region containing a QTL for meat tenderness The starting point of the present study was the reported identification of a chromosomal region on bovine Chromosome (Chr) 15 (BTA15) carrying loci affecting meat tenderness. A comparative linkage map of BTA15 and human Chr 11 (HSA11) was constructed to identify potential positional candidate genes and to provide a resource of genetic markers to support marker-assisted selection (MAS). Relative rearrangements between the bovine and human genomes for these chromosomes are the most complex observed in comparative mapping between the two species, with nine alternating blocks of conserved synteny between HSA11 and bovine Chrs 15 and 29. The results of this study were the addition of nine genes to the HSA11/BTA15 comparative linkage map, and development of five microsatellite markers within the quantitative trait locus (QTL) interval. One gene with known effects on muscle development (MYOD1) was mapped to the interval. A second gene (CALCA) involved in regulation of calcium levels, a key factor in postmortem tenderization, also mapped within the interval. Refinement of the comparative map and QTL position will reduce the interval on the human transcription map to be scanned in search of candidates, reducing the effort and resources required to identify the allelic variation responsible for the genetic effect. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Mammalian Genome Springer Journals
