The lxm1 gene maps near position 88 on 3L
--Denise Schichnes, Claudine Woo and Michael Freeling

The gene lxm1 is identified by a single, EMS induced dominant mutant allele. lxm1 was originally described and mapped to chromosome 3 by M. G. Neuffer (MNL 62:53). lxm1 shows linkage to lg2 on chromosome 3L.
lg2 Lxm1 Lxm1:lg2 W.T.
80 42 7 5

Based on these data, lxm is 8.3 map units from lg2.

Using RFLP probes for 3L, we determined the location of lxm1 at approximately position 88 on chromosome 3.
