This report extends the genetic map of the common shrew (Sorex αrαneus) by use of a clone panel of shrew-Chinese hamster and shrew-mouse hybrid cells (Pack et al., 1995; Matyakhina et al., 1996). This set of hybrid clones made it possible to assign the shrew genes for isocitrate dehydrogenase 2 (IDH2), inorganic pyrophosphatase (PP), glutamic-pyruvate transaminase (GPT), adenosine kinase (ADK), glucuronidase 2 (GUSB) and acid phosphatase 2 (ACP2) to chromosome ik, the genes for adenylate kinases 1 and 3 (AK1 and AK3) to chromosome af; the genes for glutamate-oxaloacetate transaminase 2 (GOT2), peptidase D (PEPD) and growth hormone (GH) to chromosome hn; the gene for phosphoglucomutase 2 (PGM2) to chromosome go, the gene for enolase 1 (ENOl) to chromosome jl, the gene for ornithine carbamoyl-transferase (OTC) to chromosome de, the gene for aminoacylase 1 (ACY1) to arm m (chromosome mp), the gene for glutamate-oxaloacetate transaminase 1 (GOT1) to arm q (chromosome qr). Thus, the genetic map of the common shrew now contains 33 genes and it is possible to compare the syntenic associations with other species.
