The phosphorylase kinase deficiency (Phk) locus has been located in the mouse X chromosome, the order of genes being centromere-Bn-Phk-Ta-jp. Since the Phk locus of the mouse may be identical to the locus responsible for the X-linked phosphorylase kinase deficiency trait of man, and there may be a high degree of gene-order homology in the X chromosome of all mammals, the location of Phk in the mouse reported here may aid in locating the phosphorylase kinase gene on the X chromosome of man.
