New insights into porcine-human synteny conservation

New insights into porcine-human synteny conservation Eleven genes were mapped to the porcine genome with the aim of improving the human-porcine comparative gene map. Five of these genes were from regions of the human genome painted by porcine chromosomal probes; of these, two mapped to chromosomes not expected from the painting results. Among the six genes from human regions not painted by porcine chromosomal probes, three genes did not map where expected by the principle of parsimony. Several of the gene assignments indicate the existence of small regions of conserved synteny not detected by heterologous chromosome painting, especially in telomeric regions. We have also detected new rearrangements in gene order within the regions of correspondence between human Chromosome (HSA) 15 and porcine Chromosome (SSC) 1 as well as between HSA4 and SSC8.
