Show Summary Details


Pieces of metaphase chromosomes prepared from mouse cells containing neo-tagged human chromosome 7 were transferred to mouse cells with calcium phosphate to isolate G418-resistant clones. FISH analysis revealed that the majority of them contained human DNA at a single site on their genome. These transformants contained STS markers mapped to various regions of chromosome 7. It is thus suggested that pieces of human chromosomes tend to assemble and integrate on the mouse genome.
