Codominant manifestation of the gene controlling electrophoretic mobility of storage protein-2 in larval haemolymph of Borribyx mori was reconfirmed, and the gene was named “Storage protein-2” with symbol Pst. Precise localization of Pst was made by a three-point experiment involving lem and Ze. The gene lem have been mapped at 0.0 position and Ze at 20.8, respectivelly, on the third linkage group. The recombination value between lem and Pst was 15.25%, Pst-Ze 3.71% and lem-Ze 18.64%. Taking correction factor into account, the locus of Pst was determined to be 16.7 to the right of lem and 4.1 to the left of Ze. Hence the Pst gene is localized at 16.7 on genetic map of the third linkage group.
