Linkage disequilibrium between the T/t complex and Pgk‐2 – two loci flanking the murine major histocompatibility complex on chromosome 17‐ has been found in a population of wild mice. By subjecting 78 wild males to progeny testing, we extracted 15 recessive t haplotypes of the T/t complex and assigned 12 of them to the tw5 complementation group. We also determined the allelic phase of T/t, Pgk‐2, and Ce‐2 on both chromosomes from each wild male. The allele Pgk‐2c was always associated with a t haplotype, although the converse was not true.
