Reassignment of chicken W chomosome sequences to the Z chromosome by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)

Stiglec, Rami; Ezaz, Tariq; Graves, Jennifer


There is much interest in the gene content of the small heterochromatic W chromosome of the chicken, on the supposition that it may contain sex-determining genes. A considerable region in the chicken genome has been assigned to the W chromosome on the basis of its repetitive sequences. Using fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) we localized five Bacterial Artificial Chromosomes (BACs) onto female chicken metaphase spreads. We physically mapped these BACs to the Z chromosome. The chicken...[Show more]
