Subtype-specific probes to the murine homologs of the human ADRA2B and ADRA2C genes were prepared by PCR amplification and used to map these two genes to mouse chromosomes 2 and 5, respectively. Both genes mapped in regions of mouse chromosomes consistent with their map location in humans. These mapping results provide additional insights into the linkage relationships among members of this important gene family.
