A mouse genomic library in λCharon 4A was screened for putative ribosomal protein genes using a fragment of the gene encoding Drosophila ribosomal protein 49 as a hybridization probe under nonstringent hybridization conditions. A recombinant phage was selected and its restriction enzyme map determined. The major species of mouse poly(A)+ mRNA homologous to the putative gene is about 740 nucleotides long.
