Abstract

KOWALSKI, Andrzej et al. Phenotypic variation of erythrocyte linker histone H1.c in a pheasant (Phasianus colchicus L.) population. Genet. Mol. Biol. [online]. 2010, vol.33, n.3, pp. 475-478. ISSN 1415-4757.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1415-47572010000300016.

Our goal was to characterize a phenotypic variation of the pheasant erythrocyte linker histone subtype H1.c. By using two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis three histone H1.c phenotypes were identified. The differently migrating allelic variants H1.c1 and H1.c2 formed either two homozygous phenotypes, c1 and c2, or a single heterozygous phenotype, c1c2. In the pheasant population screened, birds with phenotype c2 were the most common (frequency 0.761) while individuals with phenotype c1 were rare (frequency 0.043).

Keywords : linker histones; H1.c subtype; allelic variants; electrophoresis.
