Linkages among three biochemical loci (Acol, Ahd2, and Mup1) and four microsatellite loci (A8, Glut1, Jun, and Pnd) were determined to construct a linkage map of rat Chromosome (Chr) 5. Consequently, an extensive linkage map on rat Chr 5 was constructed with the following gene order: A8-Aco1-Mup1-Jun-Glut1-Ahd2-Pnd. In this linkage map, the Jun and A8 loci are newly placed, and two previously reported linkage groups on rat Chr 5 are connected by the Jun locus. The linkage map indicates an extensive linkage conservation between the loci on rat Chr 5 and those on mouse Chr 4.
