Zaprionus tuberculatus: chromosome map and gene mapping by DNA in situ hybridization


, : Zaprionus tuberculatus: chromosome map and gene mapping by DNA in situ hybridization. Journal of Heredity 83(4): 299-304

The genus Drosophila has long been used as a model of karyotype evolution, demonstrating change by paracentric inversion and occasional centric fusion of an ancestral karyotype of five rod-shaped and one "dot" chromosome. This study shows, by mapping D. melanogaster probes hybridized to polytene chromosomes of Zaprionus tuberculatus, that this ancestral pattern extends beyond the genus Drosophila. A formal polytene chromosome map of Z. tuberculatus is presented.

The calcium-sensing receptor (CASR), a member of the G-protein coupled receptor family, is expressed in both parathyroid and kidney, and aids these organs in sensing extracellular calcium levels. Inactivating mutations in the CASR gene have been d...

Jaffe E.; Bornstein P.; Disteche C.M., 1990: Mapping of the thrombospondin gene to human chromosome 15 and mouse chromosome 2 by in situ hybridization. We have mapped the thrombospondin gene (THBS1) to a single locus on human chromosome 15 (band q15) and on mouse chromosome 2 (region F). Thrombospondin has been implicated in a variety of cell-matrix and cell-cell interactions. The finding of a si...

We have sequenced 2,388 bp of the European rabbit sex determining region Y (SRY) gene. These data provide a 10-fold increase in the coverage of the Y chromosome in this species, including the entire open reading frame of the SRY, the polyadenylati...

The drosophilid Zaprionus indianus due to its economical importance as an insect pest in Brazil deserves more investigation into its genetics. Its mitotic karyotype and a line-drawing map of its polytene chromosomes are already available. This pap...

Sarmiento, U.M.; Kadavil, K., 1993: Mapping of the porcine involucrin (IVL) gene to chromosome 4 by fluorescence in situ hybridization. The probe used for mapping the gene was a 5 kb BamHI-HindIII fragment of a porcine genomic clone that contained the full-length involucrin gene. The approx. band location on chromosome 4 was q22-q23.

Ribophorin I and II (RPN I and RPN II), two specific glycoproteins, span the rough regions of the endoplasmic reticulum (RER) and are thought to play an important role either in translocation or in the maintenance of RER. Studies with human-mouse...

We report the structural organization of a segment of the human thyroglobulin gene, located 70kb from the 3' end of the gene, containing the exons 8 and 9 starting from the 3' end. Selected probes from this region have been used for the...
