Zinc finger protein gene complexes on mouse chromosomes 8 and 11

Genomics. 1990 Nov;8(3):469-76. doi: 10.1016/0888-7543(90)90033-q.


Two murine homologs of the Drosophila Krüppel gene, a member of the gap class of developmental control genes that encode a protein with zinc fingers, were mapped to mouse chromosomes 8 and 11 by using somatic cell hybrids and an interspecific backcross. Surprisingly, both genes were closely linked to two previously mapped, Krüppel-related zinc finger protein genes, suggesting that they are part of gene complexes.
