The genes coding for the muscle contractile proteins myosin heavy chain myosin light chain 2 and skeletal muscle actin are located on 3 different mouse chromosomes



The genes coding for the muscle contractile proteins myosin heavy chain myosin light chain 2 and skeletal muscle actin are located on 3 different mouse chromosomes



EMBO (European Molecular Biology Organization) Journal 1(11): 1299-1306



The chromosomal distribution of murine genes expressed during differentiation of skeletal muscle cells was determined by Southern blot analysis of DNA from mouse-Chinese hamster hybrid cell lines containing incomplete subsets of mouse chromosomes. All detectable myosin H chain genes are located on chromosome 11. The gene for the myosin L chain 2 is located on chromosome 7. The skeletal muscle .alpha.-actin gene and several other actin genes, or pseudo genes, are located on chromosome 3. Additional actin DNA sequences are distributed on other mouse chromosomes.
