The gene encoded at the human X-linked chronic granulomatous disease locus (cytochrome b245 beta subunit) has been mapped to the mouse X chromosome using an interspecific Mus domesticus x M. spretus cross. The localization of this gene provides detailed information on one of the proposed ancestral breakpoints that account for the divergent evolution of the mouse and human X chromosomes.
