Title: Detection of a large RIII-derived chromosomal segment on chromosome 10 in the H-2 congenic strain B10.RIII(71NS)/Sn

Abstract

This report describes the results of a study of the chromosomal localization of certain loci related to the susceptibility of specific mouse strains to collagen-induced arthritis, the biological model for rheumatoid arthritis. There were surprising results concerning the chromosomal mapping of mouse chromosome 10 and 17 and the backcrosses of mice involved. 7 refs., 1 fig., 2 tabs.

  • A cDNA clone encoding a human receptor for the Fc portion of IgG Fc{gamma}RIII or CD16, was isolated from a human leukocyte library by a transient expression-immunoselection procedure. This cDNA (pGP5) encodes a 46-kDa phosphatidylinositol-linked cell surface protein with CD16 determinants and affinity for human IgG. The deduced protein sequence is most homologous to the murine receptor Fc{gamma}RII{alpha}, with slightly less homology to the human receptors Fc{gamma}RII and Fc{epsilon}RI. The cDNA hybridizes to a 2.2 kilobase mRNA in human leukocytes and a cloned human natural killer cell line. Fc{gamma}RIII is mapped to chromosome 1 by spot-blot analysis of sorted humanmore » chromosomes. Hybridization of Fc{gamma}RII and Fc{gamma}RIII probes to restriction digests of human genomic DNA separated by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis demonstrates physical linkage of the two genes within a maximum distance of 200 kilobases. The results identify a locus for at least two Fc{gamma}R genes on human chromosome 1.« less
  • Sex chromosome aneuploidy is the most common numerical chromosomal abnormality in humans at birth and a substantial portion of these abnormalities involve paternal chromosomes. An efficient method is presented for using air-dried smears of human semen to detect the number of X and Y chromosomes in sperm chromatin using two-chromosome fluorescence in situ hybridization. Air-dried semen smears were pre-treated with dithiothreitol and 3,4-diiodosalicylate salt to decondense the sperm chromatin and then were hybridized with repetitive sequence DNA probes that had been generated by PCR and differentially labeled. Hybridizations with X and Y specific probes showed the expected ratio of 50%X:50%Ymore » bearing sperm. Sperm carrying extra fluorescence domains representing disomy for the X or Y chromosomes occurred at frequencies of {approximately} 4 per 10,000 sperm each. Cells carrying both X and Y fluorescence domains occurred at a frequency of {approximately} 6/10,000. Thus, the overall frequency of sperm that carried an extra sex chromosome was 1.4/1,000. The frequencies of sperm carrying sex chromosome aneuploidies determined by hybridization did not differ statistically from those reported from the same laboratory using the human-sperm/hamster-egg cytogenetic technique. Multi-chromosome fluorescence in situ hybridization to sperm is a promising method for assessing sex-ratio alterations in human semen and for determining the fraction of sperm carrying sex or other chromosome aneuploidies which may be transmissible to offspring. 44 refs., 1 fig., 3 tabs.« less
  • Chromosomal in situ suppression (CISS)-hybridization of biotinylated phage DNA-library inserts from sorted human chromosomes was used to decorate chromosomes 1 and 7 specifically from pter to qter and to detect structural aberrations of these chromosomes in irradiated human peripheral lymphocytes. In addition, probe pUC1.77 was used to mark the 1q12 subregion in normal and aberrant chromosomes 1. Low LET radiation (60Co-gamma-rays; 1.17 and 1.33 MeV) of lymphocyte cultures was performed with various doses (D = 0, 2, 4, 8 Gy) 5 h after stimulation with phytohaemagglutinin. Irradiated cells were cultivated for an additional 67 h before Colcemid arrested metaphase spreadsmore » were obtained. Aberrations of the specifically stained chromosomes, such as deletions, dicentrics, and rings, were readily scored after in situ hybridization with either the 1q12 specific probe or DNA-library inserts. By the latter approach, translocations of the specifically stained chromosomes could also be reliably assessed. A linear increase of the percentage of specifically stained aberrant chromosomes was observed when plotted as a function of the square of the dose D. A particular advantage of this new approach is provided by the possibility to delineate numerical and structural chromosome aberrations directly in interphase nuclei. These results indicate that cytogenetic monitoring of ionizing radiation may be considerably facilitated by CISS-hybridization.« less
  • Genetically determined resistance to murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV) in mice is controlled by both H2 and non-H2 genes. We have identified a phenotypically-defined, autosomal dominant, non-H2 gene, designated Cmvl, that regulates MCMV replication in the spleens of inbred mice. C57BL/6J mice possess the Cmvl{sup r} and exhibit low titers of MCMV replication, whereas the BALB/c strain, which possesses the Cmvl{sup s} allele, exhibits high virus titers in the spleen. 19 refs., 4 figs.
