The murine locus corresponding to the human Duchenne/Becker muscular dystrophy (DMD) gene has been regionally mapped on the mouse X chromosome by hybridizing DNA from interspecies mouse crosses with a cDNA clone for the mouse Dmd gene. The results demonstrate that the relative organization of genes on the murine and human X chromosomes is more divergent than has previously been postulated. Furthermore, the mouse Dmd gene maps to a similar region of the X chromosome as does the mouse muscular dystrophy mutation mdx, providing further evidence that the mdx mutant may be a murine equivalent of human DMD. However, Southern analysis of portions of the mouse Dmd gene has not yet revealed any differences between mdx and wild-type mice.
