Mouse chromosomes banded by quinacrine mustard staining, by the ASG technique, or by Giemsa staining following trypsinization or chymotrypsinization are described in detail. Three hundred and twelve regions within the mouse karyotype can be distinguished and a simple system of nomenclature is proposed for naming these regions. This nomenclature is applied(More)
The recombinant inbred (RI) set of strains, AXB and BXA, derived from C57BL/6J and A/J, originally constructed and maintained at the University of California/San Diego, have been imported into The Jackson Laboratory and are now in the 29th to 59th generation of brother-sister matings. Genetic quality control testing with 45 proviral and 11 biochemical(More)
The murine homologs of two viral oncogenes associated with tyrosine-specific kinase activity have been assigned to different loci in the mouse genome. The segregation of restriction site polymorphisms, as detected by probes that are specific for endogenous c-fes and c-src sequences, was followed in the DNA of recombinant inbred strains. The c-fes gene was(More)
Metaphase chromosomes of mice carrying Cattanach's translocation, which is the deletion of material from a medium-sized autosome and its insertion into an X chromosome, were stained with quinacrine mustard. Comparison of the fluorescence patterns of these chromosomes with those of the chromosomes of normal mice has allowed the identification of the autosome(More)
Chromosomal locations of members of the xenotropic-related env gene family in the mouse genome have been determined. Endonuclease restriction site polymorphisms detected by molecular hybridization were used to study the inheritance of mink cell-focus inducing and xenotropic env gene-related sequences in recombinant inbred strains of mice. Some of the(More)
Murine Ly-6-encoded molecules play an important role in the antigen-independent activation of lymphocytes. We have described the cloning of a cDNA encoding the protein component of an Ly-6 molecule. Hybridization studies indicated that this cDNA identified multiple DNA fragments on Southern blots. The banding pattern exhibits a restriction fragment length(More)
A variety of genes have been identified that specify the synthesis of the components of guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins). Eight different guanine nucleotide-binding alpha-subunit proteins, two different beta subunits, and one gamma subunit have been described. Hybridization of cDNA clones with DNA from human-mouse somatic cell hybrids was(More)
