A 171 812 bp nucleotide sequence between and(83° to 97°) on the genetic map of the168 chromosome was determined and analysed. An accurate physical/genetic map of this previously poorly described chromosomal region was constructed. One hundred and seventy open reading frames (ORFs) were identified on this DNA fragment. These include the previously described genes andin this region corresponds to the marker. Among the striking features of this region are: an abundance of genes encoding (putative) transporter proteins, several dysfunctional genes, the ubiquitous gene, and five multidrug-resistance-like genes. These analyses have also revealed the existence of numerous paralogues of ORFs in this region: about two-thirds of the putative genes seem to have at least one paralogue in the
