In recombinant mouse strains the elements of the major histocompatibility complex gene cluster are composed of those of the parental strains. The origin of elements except the S region was previously determined by immunological and biochemical typing methods. For determination of the origin of the S region and the possible location of the recombination event around the S region, Southern blot analysis was performed. By the detection of genetic polymorphic patterns of complement C4 gene in 2 of the 5 recombinant strains the recombination was localized down-stream of the C4 gene and before the D gene region.
