High impact information on Ldr1

  • Five of twelve B6.SW-Soaa strains were found to retain Ldr-1, lactate dehydrogenase regulator-1, on chromosome 6 as an allelic passenger from the SWR/J donor strain (source of the Soaa Taster allele) [1].
  • Linkage tests indicated that the locus Ldr-2 determining the amounts of the LDH B subunit in mouse liver tissue is located in chromosome 6, 19 + or - 4.1 cm away from the earlier described Ldr-1 locus [2].
  • Inadequate genotyping may have occurred at Gpi-1 and Ldr-1, as suggested by a 'week effect' on the observed genotype numbers (P less than 0.05) [3].
  • It is of interest then that there is a mouse gene, Ldr-1, on chromosome 6 that regulates the level of LDH B subunits in mouse erythrocytes [4].
