The porcine PER1 gene was mapped to chromosome 12q1.4-->q1.5 using fluorescence in situ hybridisation. A polymorphic microsatellite marker (S0601) was isolated from a BAC clone shown to contain the PER1 gene. Linkage analysis assigned S0601 distal to ALOX12 on SSC12, providing further evidence for the conservation of synteny between HSA17 and SSC12. RT-PCR analysis demonstrated the expression of PER1 in all 11 tissues tested, consistent with the data from other mammalian species. Part of the PER1 gene was sequenced, homologous to exons 2-14 of the human gene and encoding the N-terminus of porcine PER1. The predicted amino acid sequence of the partial pig PER1 protein shares over 96% identity with its human orthologue.
