Location of dominant male sterile on chromosome 4L

Male sterile, Ms41, was located on chromosome 4 using the T wx series. The backcross data listed show close Ms Wx linkage for T4-9b, less close for T4-9(5657) and very little for T4-9g. These data place Ms41 on the long arm near, and possibly distal to, the breakpoint of T4-9b.
