Chromosome painting in the African four-striped mouse Rhabdomys pumilio: Detection of possible murid specific contiguous segment combinations
Fluorescence in-situ hybridization was used to construct a comparative chromosome map between the laboratory mouse, Mus musculus and the African four-striped mouse, Rhabdomys pumilio. A high degree of homology between the ...
Reciprocal chromosome painting among human, aardvark, and elephant (superorder Afrotheria) reveals the likely eutherian ancestral karyotype
The Afrotheria, a supraordinal grouping of mammals whose radiation is rooted in Africa, is strongly supported by DNA sequence data but not by their disparate anatomical features. We have used flow-sorted human, aardvark, ...
Are Polymorphic Markers within the α-1-Antitrypsin Gene Associated with Risk of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Disease?
We sought to determine whether variants of the human α-1-antitrypsin (AAT) gene, also known as "PI," or "SERPINA1," are associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in 2 African-based populations from ...
Molecular systematics of dormice (Rodentia: Gliridae) and the radiation of Graphiurus in Africa
The phylogenetic relationships among the Gliridae (order Rodentia) were assessed using 3430 nucleotides derived from three nuclear fragments (β-spectrin non-erythrocytic 1, thyrotropin and lecithin cholesterol acyl ...
