Human chromosome 16 features one of the highest levels of segmentally duplicated sequence among the human autosomes. We report here the 78,884,754 base pairs of finished chromosome 16 sequence, representing over 99.9% of its euchromatin. Manual annotation revealed 880 protein-coding genes confirmed by 1,670 aligned transcripts, 19 transfer RNA genes, 341(More)
Two recombinant DNA clones that are localized to single human chromosomes were isolated from a human repetitive DNA library. Clone pHuR 98, a variant satellite 3 sequence, specifically hybridizes to chromosome position 9qh. Clone pHuR 195, a variant satellite 2 sequence, specifically hybridizes to chromosome position 16qh. These locations were determined by(More)
The dinucleotide repetitive sequence, (GT)n, is highly interspersed in eukaryotic genomes and may have functional roles in genetic recombination or the modulation of transcriptional activity. We have examined the distribution and conservation of position of GT repetitive sequences in several mammalian genomes. The distribution of GT repetitive sequences in(More)
The functional human metallothionein (MT) genes are located on chromosome 16q13. We have physically mapped the functional human MT locus by isolation and restriction digest mapping of cloned DNA. The mapped region contains all sequences on chromosome 16 that hybridize to metallothionein gene probes and comprises 14 tightly linked MT genes, 6 of which have(More)
In this report, we present the techniques used for the construction of chromosome-specific partial digest libraries from flow-sorted chromosomes and the characterization of two such libraries from human chromosome 16. These libraries were constructed to provide materials for use in the development of a high-resolution physical map of human chromosome 16,(More)
Mapping of 33 anonymous DNA probes and 12 genes to the long arm of chromosome 16 was achieved by the use of 14 mouse/human hybrid cell lines and the fragile site FRA16B. Two of the hybrid cell lines contained overlapping interstitial deletions in bands q21 and q22.1. The localization of the 12 genes has been refined. The breakpoints present in the hybrids,(More)
We have applied EM in situ hybridization (EMISH) and pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) to samples from diploid primary cell cultures and an established cell line to examine in detail the relative organization of the major and minor satellite DNAs and telomere sequences in the genomes of Mus domesticus and Mus spretus. EMISH localizes the Mus(More)
