We have established a 67-cM molecular genetic linkage map of mouse chromosome 8 by interspecific backcross analysis. Genes that were mapped in this study include Act-6, Aprt, Aprt-ps1, Emv-2, Es-N, Hp, Insr, Mt-1, Plat, Psx-8, Ucp, and Zfp-4. New regions of homology were established between mouse chromosome 8 and human chromosomes 8 and 19. A conserved linkage group was identified between mouse chromosome 8 and human chromosome 16. The map will be useful for establishing linkage of other markers to mouse chromosome 8.
