Abstract

A gene locus is described controlling liver activities in the house mouse of three glycosidases, i.e., beta-galactosidase, beta-glucuronidase, and N-acetyl-beta-hexosaminidase. An allele conferring low activity is present in the inbred strain LIS/A, and an allele for high activity is present in A/BrAf mice. The three enzyme activities are correlated with each other. The possible linkage between this gene and the Bgs locus on chromosome 9 is discussed.
