Specialized Mapping

Finding Chromosomal Locations

Using Tetrad Analysis To Study Genetic Distances(see Tetrad Analysis Web Module for Chapter 7 on Text Web Sitehttp://whfreeman.com/pierce/)

Physical chromosome mapping
Physical Chromosome Mapping

  • Somatic-Cell Hybridization

    Using human-rodent somatic cell hybrids to study the location of genes on chromosomes

Human-mouse hybrid cells with different

numbers of human chromosomes (blue).

Physical Chromosome Mapping

  • How can we determine which chromosome carries a specific gene?

    In human-mouse hybrid cells, a 1:1 correspondence exists between the presence of the enzymatic activity for the gene and the presence of the chromosome carrying the gene.

Problem 4 page 2 2
Problem 4, Page 2-2

Hybrid cells containing human and mouse chromosomes were analyzed. The grid on the left shows the presence or absence of each of four human chromosomes in hybrid cell lines A through D. The grid on the right shows the presence or absence of human enzyme activity in each of the cell lines. Assign the gene for each enzyme to the chromosome that carries the gene.

  • How can we determine which portion of a chromosome carries a specific gene?

    If the enzymatic activity is present in a cell line with an intact chromosome but missing from a line with a deletion in that chromosome, the gene for the enzyme is in the deleted region.

Gene is located on the short arm of Chromosome 4, in the region missing from Cell line 3

Enzyme Activity

Present with intact Chromosome 4

Absent when short arm of Chromosome 4

is deleted

Absent without Chromosome 4

Problem 2, Page 2-1

In a Neurospora cross of ab x a+b+, the following classes and numbers of tetrads were produced. Neurospora produces ordered tetrads that undergo a single mitosis after formation. Pairs of spores are listed below for simplicity.
