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
on chromosome 3L.
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.
