The alpha 2 chain of type 1 collagen does not map to mouse chromosome 16 but maps close to the Met proto-oncogene on mouse chromosome 6.
- The gene locus for the alpha 2 chain of type 1 collagen (Cola-2) was previously assigned to chromosome 16. Here we demonstrate, utilising both somatic cell hybrid analysis and genetic linkage analysis, in an interspecific Mus domesticus x Mus spretus cross that Cola-2 fails to cosegregate with mouse chromosome 16, but is linked to the Met proto-oncogene on chromosome 6.
