Chromosomal localization of the gene for late lactation protein (LLP) in the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii)

Cytogenet Cell Genet. 1991;56(3-4):182-4. doi: 10.1159/000133083.


The gene coding for the late lactation protein (LLP) in Macropus eugenii has been mapped using in situ hybridization to the proximal region of the long arm of chromosome 3. This position was confirmed by means of exclusion Southern blot analysis.
