The metallothionein-I gene maps to mouse chromosome 8: implications for human Menkes' disease


We have assigned the structural gene (Mt-1) coding for the murine metal-binding protein metallothionein I (MT-1) to mouse chromosome 8 by using a cloned DNA probe for mouse Mt-1 in combination with a panel of Chinese hamstermouse somatic cell hybrid clones segregating mouse chromosomes. Analysis of hybrid cell extracts for the presence of mouse Mt-1 or MT-1… (More)
