Physical mapping of the MEL gene family in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Curr Genet. 1993 Dec;24(6):461-4. doi: 10.1007/BF00351706.


Nine members, MEL2-MEL10, of the MEL gene family coding for alpha-galactosidase were physically mapped to the ends of the chromosomes by chromosome fragmentation. Genetic mapping of the genes supported the location of all the MEL genes in the left arm of their resident chromosomes.
