Adam9, Adam15 and Adam21, genes encoding members of the ADAM or MDC family of metalloproteases, have been mapped to mouse chromosomes 8, 1, and 12, respectively, using an interspecific cross. The mapping of these mouse loci and the extrapolated loci for their human orthologs may facilitate the mapping of diseases involving these genes.
