The E/C alpha- and beta-subunits of intra-I-region recombinants were analyzed for primary structural variation by comparative tryptic peptide mapping. The E/C alpha-polypeptides from B10.A, B10.A (3R) and B10.A (5R) showed complete coincident elution of peptides; the E/C beta-chains from B10.A and 3R (or 5R) were approximately 40% different. This suggests that the structural gene for the E/C beta-polypeptide is within the I-A subregion.
