Robertsonian translocations, also called centric fusions, represent the most frequent chromosome anomalies in cattle, and rob (1;29) is the most widespread. However centric fusions involving other chromosomes have been discovered in different cattle breeds. Here we report the appearance of a new case of rob (14;17) in an Italian cattle breed more than ten years from the first and only case observed, and we demonstrate the different origin of this anomaly from the previous case.

Abstract

Robertsonian translocations, also called centric fusions, represent the most frequent chromosome anomalies in cattle, and rob (1;29) is the most widespread. However centric fusions involving other chromosomes have been discovered in different cattle breeds. Here we report the appearance of a new case of rob (14;17) in an Italian cattle breed more than ten years from the first and only case observed, and we demonstrate the different origin of this anomaly from the previous case.
