We have identified restriction fragment length polymorphisms between Mus musculus and Mus spretus for the Chromosome 15 loci Hox-3, Wnt-1, Krt-2, Rar-g, and Ly-6. We followed the inheritance of these alleles in interspecific genetic test crosses between velvet coat (Ve) heterozygotes and M. spretus. The results suggest a gene order and recombination distances (in cM) of Ly-6-22-Wnt-1-2-Ve/Krt-2/Rar-g-3-Hox-3. No recombination was found between Ve, Krt-2, and Rar-g. The data also provide evidence for the hypothesis of a large-scale genomic duplication involving homologous gene pairs on mouse Chromosomes 15 and 11.
