More than 150 individual members of 16 ribosomal protein multigene families were identified as DNA restriction fragments and genetically mapped. The ribosomal protein gene-related sequences are widely dispersed throughout the mouse genome. Map positions were determined by analysis of 144 progeny mice from both an interspecific (C57BL/6J × SPRET/Ei)F1 × SPRET/Ei and an intersubspecific (C57BL/6J × CAST/Ei)F1 × C57BL/6J backcross. In addition, 30 members of the multigene families encoding PGK1… 
Location of the 9257 and ataxia mutations on mouse Chromosome 18
The results demonstrate that ataxia and the insertional mutation TgN9257Mm are separated by less than 1 cM and are located approximately 3 cM from the centromere, while the balding locus is 7 cM more distal.
Mapping of the Hmg1 gene and of seven related sequences in the mouse
By using an interspecific cross, the functional HMG1 gene on mouse Chromosome 5 and seven Hmg1-related sequences on Chrs 6, 8, 17, 18, and X are mapped.
Strain distribution pattern for SSLP markers in the SWXJ recombinant inbred strain set: Chromosomes 7 to X
Data is presented for 223 simple sequence length polymorphisms spanning Chromosomes (Chrs) 7-X to complete the genetic marking of this SWXJ RI set, a powerful tool for mapping genes in neoplastic as well as other heritable disorders.
Homologs of genes and anonymous loci on human Chromosome 13 map to mouse Chromosomes 8 and 14
To enhance the comparative map for human Chromosome (Chr) 13, clones for human genes and anonymous loci that cross-hybridized with their mouse homologs and then used linkage crosses for mapping used interspecific and intersubspecific mapping panels to identify either a closely linked sequence related to Col4a2, or a recombination hot-spot that has been conserved in humans and mice.
Gene homologs on human chromosome 15q21-q26 and a chicken microchromosome identify a new conserved segment
It is suggested that a segment of human Chr 15 has been conserved as a chicken microchromosome, and the significance of this result is discussed with reference to the evolution of the avian and mammalian genomes.
Identification and Cloning of a Truncated Isoform of the Cardiac Sodium-Calcium Exchanger in the BALB/c Mouse Heart
A truncated isoform of the cardiacsodium-calcium exchanger (NCX1) was identified and cloned from BALB/c mouse heart and the NCX1 gene was mapped to the distal end of mousechromosome 17 (51.3 cM), confirming the data published from the rat probe.
A new mouse mutation causing male sterility and histoincompatibility
The testes of homozygous mutants are highly disorganized and appear to have a block in the regulation of male germ cell proliferation, and the most likely gene order places the mutation between D10 Mit80 and D10Mit16, near the interferon gamma receptor locus, Ifgr, which may be a candidate gene for this mutation.
Megencephaly: a new mouse mutation on chromosome 6 that causes hypertrophy of the brain
It is determined that the megencephaly is characterized by overall hypertrophy of the brain, and not by hyperplasia of particular cell types or by hypertrophies of a singular tissue compartment.


Identification and genetic mapping of the murine gene and 20 related sequences encoding chromosomal protein HMG-17
The murine functional gene, Hmg17, is identified from among more than 25 related sequences and it is shown that it is located on mouse Chr 4, in a region known to have conserved linkage relationships with human Chr 1p.
Identification and applications of repetitive probes for gene mapping in the mouse.
Three repetitive probes that collectively identify 28 loci dispersed on 16 of the 19 mouse autosomes and the X chromosome establish a skeleton linkage map that can be used to detect linkage over much of the mouse genome.
Three functional ribosomal protein genes are unlinked in mouse genome
The mouse chromosomes bearing three functional ribosomal protein (rp) genes were identified by Southern blot analysis of DNA from a panel of mouse-hamster hybrid cell lines. Unique sequence intron
Characterization of the expressed gene and several processed pseudogenes for the mouse ribosomal protein L30 gene family.
Five cloned genes encoding the mouse ribosomal protein L30 were isolated from a recombinant DNA library and characterized by restriction mapping and nucleotide sequence analysis, finding some novel features which are remarkably similar to the previously characterized mouse rpL32 gene.
Characterization of the multigene family encoding the mouse S16 ribosomal protein: strategy for distinguishing an expressed gene from its processed pseudogene counterparts by an analysis of total genomic DNA
It is concluded that the ribosomal protein S16 multigene family contains one expressed intron-containing gene and nine inactive pseudogenes, most or all of which are of the processed type.
A multigene family of intron lacking and containing genes, encoding for mouse ribosomal protein L7.
Electron microscopic analysis of heteroduplex and S1 nuclease mapping demonstrate that the first five genes contain the entire L7 mRNA sequence but lack introns, and it is proposed that these are processed genes.
Distribution of ribosomal gene length variants among mouse chromosomes.
The results show that five of the length variant classes can be divided into three discrete linkage groups, and one particular VrDNA linkage group is localized to chromosome 12, suggesting that these and other restriction fragment polymorphisms can be used in the construction of detailed mouse linkage maps.
