We screened a porcine bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) and a P1 derived artificial chromosome (PAC) library to construct a sequence-ready approximately 1.2-Mb BAC/PAC contig of the ryanodine receptor-1 gene (RYR1) region on porcine chromosome (SSC) 6q1.2. This genomic segment is of special interest because it harbors the locus for stress susceptibility in pigs and a putative quantitative trait locus for muscle growth. Detailed physical mapping of this gene-rich region allowed us to assign to this contig 17 porcine genes orthologous to known human chromosome 19 genes. Apart from the relatively well-characterized porcine gene RYR1, the other 16 genes represent novel chromosomal assignments and 14 genes have been cloned for the first time in pig. Comparative analysis of the porcine BAC/PAC contig with the human chromosome (HSA) 19q13.13 map revealed a completely conserved gene order of this segment between pig and human. A detailed porcine-human-mouse comparative map of this region was constructed.
