Abstract - An attempt was made to assign five genes, CPS1, OTC, ASS, CRYD2, and ARG2, to chicken chromosomes (GGA) by radiation-hybrid mapping. OTC was assigned to GGA1; ARG2 to GGA5; CPS1 to GGA7; and CRYD2 to GGA19. ASS was not, however, assigned to a specific chromosomal position.

Key words: ornithine-urea cycle / chicken / radiation hybrid mapping / chromosomal assignment
