Structure of Loci Controlling Complex Blood Group Systems in Cattle

  • J. Bouw
  • A. Fiorentini


In this report a series of cases of irregular transmission of blood groups of the system B in cattle will be presented. The irregularities are considered to be a result of crossing-over within the chromosomal region which controls this blood group system. On the basis of a series of cases of crossing-over a tentative map is proposed in which a linear order is presented for the genes or gene complexes which control the blood groups of this system.
