Interpretive Summary: We report the assignment of 11 genes to the developing (genetic) linkage map of the pig genome. Two genes locate the ends of linkage groups on pig chromosomes 9 and 13. These assignments help align the swine linkage map with the human map.
Technical Abstract: We report comparative linkage mapping of eleven genes in the swine genome by RFLP analysis. These genes include: Acid phosphatase type 5 (ACP5), Cholecystokinin Type B Receptor (CCKBR), Antibiotic Peptide (FALL39), Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 Receptor (IGF1R), Integrin Alpha M (ITGAM), Integrin Beta 2 (ITG 2), Opioid Receptor Mu-1 (OPRM1), Pro-hormone Converter (PC1/3), Retinol Binding Protein 3 (RBP3), Ribosomal DNA (RNR1), and Zona Pellucida Glycoprotein 1 (ZP1). The CCKBR and ITG 2 loci define the ends of the linkage groups on chromosomes (SSC) 9p and 13, respectively.
