The genetic map positions of 12 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers spanning mouse Chromosome (Chr) 16 were determined relative to reference markers on that chromosome. Interval mapping data were obtained with a panel of DNAs from two intersubspecific backcrosses. All but one of the markers were typed by use of nonradioactive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products analyzed on agarose gels. The marker order was determined to be Prm-1, D16Mit9, Igl-1, D16Mit29, D16Mit1/D16Mit2, Smst, D16Mit4, D16Mit11, Gap43, D16Mit14, D16Mit30, D16Mit5, Pit-1, D16Mit27, D16H21S16 (formerly D21S16h), D16Mit19, App, D16Mit7, Sod-1. Two of these markers mapped to the known human Chr 21 (HSA21)/Chr 16 conserved linkage group. Nine additional SSR markers could not be typed because they were not polymorophic (four markers), did not amplify MOLD/Rk DNA (three markers), or failed to give PCR products under a range of conditions (two markers). A subset of the most robust SSRs provide a useful marker set for the analysis of previously unmapped crosses.
