Interphase chromosome positioning in in vitro porcine cells and ex vivo porcine tissues

Foster, Helen A., Griffin, Darren K., Bridger, Joanna M. (2012) Interphase chromosome positioning in in vitro porcine cells and ex vivo porcine tissues. BMC Cell Biology, 13 (1). p. 30. ISSN 1471-2121. (doi:10.1186/1471-2121-13-30) (KAR id:34143)


In interphase nuclei of a wide range of species chromosomes are organised into their own specific locations termed territories. These chromosome territories are non-randomly positioned in nuclei which is believed to be related to a spatial aspect of regulatory control over gene expression. In this study we have adopted the pig as a model in which to study interphase chromosome positioning and follows on from other studies from our group of using pig cells and tissues to study interphase genome re-positioning during differentiation. The pig is an important model organism both economically and as a closely related species to study human disease models. This is why great efforts have been made to accomplish the full genome sequence in the last decade.
