High impact information on C8b

  • We report the identification of two (GT)n simple sequence repeats (SSRs) near the rat phosphoglucomutase gene (Pgm1) gene and two SSRs, (GA)n and (GT)n, near the rat complement component 8 beta gene (C8b) [1].

Other interactions of C8b

  • Molecular mapping of SSRs for Pgm1 and C8b in the vicinity of the rat fatty locus [1].
