Abstract

The gene for carotenoid binding protein (CBP) in the silkworm, Bombyx mori, was mapped. The linkage group for the CBP gene was identified by scanning linkage analysis of the restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) pattern, and its genetic mapping with respect to known molecular markers within the group was established. The CBP gene was found to be linked to RFLP linkage group 19 which is equivalent to the phenotypic linkage group 2. The linkage map at 55 cM in length was constructed for this linkage group, with CBP mapped at 21 cM in length. When compared to a phenotypic map of chromosome 2, this result suggests that the gene that encodes CBP is the Y-gene.
