Abstract: Most extragalactic jets in radio-loud Active Galactic Nuclei are bright andvariable gamma-ray sources, which are continuously monitored with Fermi-LAT. Wepresent the gamma-ray properties of the MOJAVE and TANAMI AGN samples ofradio-loud AGN. Both programs provide properties of the parsec-scale radio jetsusing Very Long Baseline Interferometry VLBI techniques. This information isimportant to understand the broad-band emission mechanism of these sources. Inthis work we compare the radio and gamma -ray properties of the two samples andpresent upper limits on the gamma-ray flux of the radio-brightest jet sourcesnot yet detected by Fermi-LAT.
