Abstract

Mapping of the insulin promoter factor 1 gene (Ipf1) to distal mouse chromosome 5.

Abstract

Nucleotide sequence variants were identified in the 3′ untranslated region of Ipf1 cDNA, and a polymerase chain reaction-based oligonucleotide hybridization assay was used to map the gene to distal chromosome 5. An identical 12 bp insertion was shown to be present in Mus spretus and Mus m. musculus Czech II mice, 2 feral strains used in gene mapping studies.
