Abstract

The gene for tubular basement membrane (Tbm) antigen in the rat has been mapped relative to other markers in the first linkage group, and a polymorphic locus for a submaxillary gland protease, Tamase-1, has been identified. The hair-loss mutation fuzzy has also been mapped and occupies a position which is similar to that of the frizzy gene in the mouse. There are now at least five, and possibly six, genetic loci distributed over more than 30 centimorgans in the first linkage group of the rat which map in positions of approximate homology on the seventh chromosome of the mouse.
