EUCIB crosses. The latest mapping data on these crosses as well as data on the crosses of Copeland-Jenkins, Kozak, Seldin, and Chromosome 9 loci MIT are available from MGD. Readers can also view mapping data of a specific locus on other crosses in MGD (Marker Mapping This year’s CCR9 lists a total of 950 valid loci, including 292 of Data). functional genes or pseudogenes, 64 of EST markers, 555 of anonymous DNA segment markers, 13 of QTL loci, and 26 of Other WWW resources chromosomal aberrations. Of those, 65 loci are new since the last CCR9. Forty-eight of the new loci represent new functional genes As designated with “H” in the column “Method” of Table 1/Map, or pseudogenes including 27 EST markers. The remaining new 43 STS markers have been included on the T31 radiation hybrid loci include 10 anonymous DNA segment markers as well as seven (RH) map. Updates for the RH data is available at The Jackson QTL locus. Two loci included in the last CCR9, Arha and Rab7, Laboratory ( have been retracted because further mapping data have confirmed rhmap/rh.html).

Synteny between mouse Chr 9 and human chromosomes Map position (MP) changes As of the submission time, 135 human orthologs of mouse Chr 9 A change of MP to Tgfbr2 (from 52 to 69) has been made based genes have been identified and mapped (see Table 1/Map and Fig. on re-evaluation of the existing data. 1). A syntenic relationship between mouse Chr 9 and human chro- mosomes can be best overviewed in Fig. 1. As a rough summary, How to use the CCR9 consensus map mouse Chr 9 segments in an MP range below are homologous to The CCR9 consensus map is made by compiling data from a large following human chromosomes (HSA): MP 1-3 to HSA 11, MP number of individual mapping studies. Details of gene order and 5-7 to HSA 19, MP 8-30 to HSA 11, MP 30-42 to HSA 15, MP positions may be very uncertain on the consensus map, since many 42-48 to HSA 6, MP 50-52 to HSA 15, MP 52-72 to HSA 3. loci have never been mapped with respect to one another in the same genetic cross, or they have been mapped only by methods Acknowledgments.
