Résumé : Seven genes were regionally localized on rat Chromosome (Chr) 1, from 1p11 to 1q42, and two of these genes were also included in a linkage map. This mapping work integrates the genetic linkage map and the cytogenetic map, and allows us to orient the linkage map with respect to the centromere, and to deduce the approximate position of the centromere in the linkage map. These mapping data also indicate that the Slc9a3 gene, encoding the Na+/H+ exchanger 3, is an unlikely candidate for the blood pressure loci assigned to rat Chr 1. These new localizations expand comparative mapping between rat Chr 1 and mouse or human chromosomes.
