Position of Igl-1, md, and Bst loci on chromosome 16 of the mouse

Immunogenetics. 1986;23(2):78-83. doi: 10.1007/BF00377965.


The experiments described here delineate the position of the chromosome 16 markers Igl-1 (immunoglobulin lambda 1, light chain), md (mahoganoid), and Bst (belly spot and tail), and suggest their location relative to the endogenous proviral locus Akv-2, which is linked within 5.9 centimorgans to Igl-1 (Epstein et al. 1984). The data from an intercross and a three-point backcross detailed herein show the order of these three genes and distances between them to be: centromere-md-10.4 +/- 1.6-Igl-1-15.6 +/- 2.6-Bst. Using a recombinant chromosome recovered in the intercross, we have constructed a stock homozygous for md and Igl-1b (KpnI-), that will aid in mapping other genes on chromosome 16.
