ZOO-FISH mapping shows human chromosomes 1, 9 and 10 share regions of homology with pig chromosome 10 (SSC10). A more refined comparative map of SSC10 has been developed to help identify positional candidate genes for QTL on SSC10 from human genome sequence. Genes from relevant chromosomal regions of the public human genome sequence were used to BLAST porcine EST databases. Primers were designed from the matching porcine ESTs to assign them to porcine chromosomes using the INRA somatic cell hybrid panel (INRA-SCHP) and the INRA-University of Minnesota Radiation Hybrid Panel (IMpRH). Twenty-eight genes from HSA1, 9 and 10 were physically mapped: fifteen to SSC10 (ACO1, ATP5C1, BMI1, CYB5R1, DCTN3, DNAJA1, EPHX1, GALT, GDI2, HSPC177, OPRS1, NUDT2, PHYH, RGS2, VIM), eleven to SSC1 (ADFP, ALDHIB1, CLTA, CMG1, HARC, PLAA, STOML2, RRP40, TESK1, VCP and VLDLR) and two to SSC4 (ALDH9A1 and TNRC4). Two anonymous markers were also physically mapped to SSC10 (SWR1849 and S0070) to better connect the physical and linkage maps. These assignments have further refined the comparative map between SSC1, 4 and 10 and HSA1, 9 and 10.
