Limits of the distal inversion in the t complex of the house mouse: evidence from linkage disequilibria.

The suppression of crossing-over and the consequent linkage disequilibrium of genetic markers within the t complex of the house mouse is caused by two large and two short inversions. The inversions encompass a region that is some 15 centiMorgans (cM) long in the homologous wild-type chromosome. The limits of the proximal inversions are reasonably well-defined, those of the distal inversions much less so. We have recently obtained seven new DNA markers (D17Tu) which in wild-type chromosomes map into the region presumably involved in the distal inversions of the t chromosomes. To find out whether the corresponding loci do indeed reside within the inversions, we have determined their variability among 26 complete and 12 partial t haplotypes. In addition, we also tested the same collection of t haplotypes for their variability at five D17Leh, Hba-ps4, Pim-1, and Crya-1 loci. The results suggest that the distal end of the most distal inversion lies between the loci D17Leh467 and D17Tu26. The proximal end of the large distal inversion was mapped to the region between the D17Tu43 and Hba-ps4 loci, but this assignment is rather ambiguous. The loci Pim-1, Crya-1, and the H-2 complex, which have been mapped between the Hba-ps4 and Grr within the large distal inversion, behave as if they recombine from time to time with their wild-type homologs.[1]
