Cell division cycle16 (CDC16) is a core component among the eight protein subunits of the anaphase-promoting complex (APC). APC is a cyclin degradation system that governs the exit of cells from mitosis. Not much information is available for CDC16 in pig. In this study, a 2284-bp cDNA of porcine CDC16 was obtained by rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE). Porcine CDC16 was assigned to SSC11 q11-17, and was determined to be significantly linked with SW1452 by using somatic cell hybrid panel and radiation hybrid panel.
