More than 6,000 rat new microsatellite sequences exploited
by our OLETF project in OGRI are deposited in this database.
Of them, some 3,000 markers are mapped by linkage and/or
radiation hybrid mapping techniques.
This database accommodates information of all markers :
marker names (GEN_ID, OT_ID, Official Names of GOT_ID),
Internal Address Codes, results of PCR analysis with rat and
hamster genomic DNA useful for linkage and/or RH mapping
effort, primer sequences, original microsatellite sequences
and accession number in DDBJ (called "core
sequences"), expected PCR product size from BN rat
strain. For RH mapping data, original RH vectors are linked
to the files in RHDB, and the results of two point analysis
against our framework map is shown through links.
This database are managing the several links to the other
external database of Radiation Hybrid DataBase (RHDB), DNA
Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ). Extensive similarity searches of
nucleotide sequences have linked our core sequences to the
other rat microsatellite markers (WIBR/MIT)and
The database are searchable by any category of queries.
For multiple queries, please delimiate the words by space.
