    Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands

    The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.

    Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.

    The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.

    As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".

    All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.

    The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.

In this section, the order of the articles has not been closely followed. Each point ends with the number(s) of the article(s) (as given in the contents), where the conclusion is based on.

1) Cytological meiotic studies of T(2;8)26H and T(1;13)70H heterozygotes and Ts(1 13)70H tertiary trisomics indicate, that chiasmata are more often located in the distal (translocated) segments than in the proximal (interstitial) segments containing centric heterochromatin (3 and 5).

2) This study opens the possibility that the presence of centric heterochromatin decreases the probability of chiasma formation in its vicinity with a positive gradient distally (5).

3) The genetic lengths of the interstitial and translocated chromosome segments coincide rather well with the physical length of these segments as estimated with the aid of Giemsa-banding. This finding does not fit the tendency expressed in the conclusions 1 and 2. The apparent exception of this rule is segment 13 t which is overestimated when looking at genetic recombination. For cytological studies, the physical length of a segment is of a greater value (4).

4) Univalence for chromosome 1 13at metaphase I - anaphase I does not lead to an appreciable loss of this chromosome in the male, neither in the Ts(1 13)70H tertiary trisomic karyotype nor in the T(1;13)70H heterozygote (3 and 5).

5) In the T70H/+ karyotype, there is strong evidence for coorientation of the 1 13univalent so that the four reciprocal translocation involved chromosomes segregate two by two. Occasionally, equational separation of the two 1 13chromatids may occur at anaphase I (5).

6) The segregational behavior of heterozygous translocation multivalent configurations can, within the genetic background concerned, be best explained by time differences of chiasma terminalization during metaphase I - anaphase 1 (5).

7) The genetic background most likely exerts an influence on the behavior of mouse reciprocal translocations (5).

8) The reliability of the formula which relates the summed frequencies of adjacent II disjunction and numerical non- disjunction and the relative viability of heterozygous translocation outcross progeny depends on the existence of selection against small litters during gestation. This is the more likely when the theoretically expected litter size decreases (5).

9) A-chiasmate non-homologous chromosome association of the centric heterochromatin of chromosome 1 13and the X-chromosome does occur (3 and 5).

10) The majority of male Ts(1 13)70H tertiary trisomics are capable of producing offspring. Thus, tertiary trisomy does not invariably lead to sterility in the male mouse (2 and 3).

11) Tertiary trisomics for chromosome 1 13in the mouse display a variety of phenotypes. The condition can lead to death in utero, to death before weaning, to morphologically affected but viable animals and to animals with an unaltered appearance (2 and 3).

12) The ratio between morphologically affected and unaffected tertiary trisomics for chromosome 1 13at birth (live or dead) amounts to between 2 and 3. This ratio might depend on the genetic background concerned (2 and 3).

13) The most obvious abnormality of the morphologically affected tertiary trisomics of the Ts(1 13)70H karyotype is a malformation of the bones of the skull which often leads to an abnormal growth of the upper and lower incisors (2).

14) The impaired fertility of Ts(1 13)70H males is most probably due to a lowered production of functional spermatozoa and the consequences this has for the continuation of pregnancy. Thus, the elimination of "unbalanced" progeny is not the first cause (3).

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
