The data establish linkage in both sexes for LDLR:LW (zeta = 8.43 at theta = 0.00) and in the male for LDLR:LU (zeta = 3.31 at theta = 0.00) and for LW:APOC2 (zeta = 3.90 at theta = 0.00). They confirm LDLR:C3 and APOC2:LU linkage in both sexes, and LW:LU linkage in the male. The loci constitute two tightly linked gene clusters, LDLR, C3, LW and APOC2, LU,… (More)
No recombinants between LW and C3, using a C3 DNA probe, were observed in 16 female meioses: z 4.216 at theta = 0.00. Combined with the data of Sistonen (1984) the recombination fraction between LW and C3 is estimated to be 0.09 (z 3.773) in females.
