Previous characterization of GLI, a gene found to be amplified and expressed in a subset of human brain tumors, revealed the presence of five tandem zinc fingers related to those of Krüppel (Kr), a Drosophila segmentation gene of the gap class. We have used the GLI cDNA as a molecular probe to isolate related sequences from the human genome. Partial(More)
Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an autosomal recessive disorder of amino acid metabolism caused by a deficiency of the hepatic enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH; phenylalanine 4-monooxygenase, EC A cDNA clone for human PAH has previously been used to assign the corresponding gene to human chromosome 12. To define the regional map position of the(More)
Apolipoprotein E (apoE) binds to specific cell-surface receptors and appears to be an important determinant in lipoprotein metabolism in man. Cloned human apoE cDNA (pAE155) was used as a probe in chromosome mapping studies to detect the structural gene sequences in human--Chinese hamster cell hybrids. Southern blot analysis of HincII-digested DNAs from 13(More)
The gene encoding the beta-amyloid precursor protein has been assigned to human chromosome 21, as has a gene responsible for at least some cases of familial Alzheimer disease. Linkage studies strongly suggest that the beta-amyloid precursor protein and the product corresponding to familial Alzheimer disease are from two genes, or at least that several(More)
Recombinant DNA techniques have been combined with somatic cell genetic methods to identify, isolate, and amplify fragments of human DNA localized at specific regions of human chromosome 11 selected as a model system. A library of genomic DNA segments has been constructed, in lambda Charon 4A bacteriophage, from the DNA of a somatic cell hybrid carrying a(More)
Cloned DNA probes were used in combination with a panel of five hybrid cell clones containing a series of different terminal deletions in human chromosome 11 to map precisely the human hemoglobin beta and delta chain structural genes contained on this chromosome. The region of deletion in each clone of the panel has been defined by biochemical, immunologic,(More)
Progesterone is involved in the development and progression of breast cancers, and progesterone receptors (PR) are important markers of hormone dependence and disease prognosis. We have used a human PR cDNA probe, genomic DNA blotting of a series of Chinese hamster-human cell hybrids, and in situ hybridization to map the human PR gene to chromosome 11, band(More)
A rapid gene-mapping system uses a high-resolution, dual-laser sorter to identify genes from separate human chromosomes prepared with a new stain combination. This system was used to sort 21 unique chromosome types onto nitrocellulose filter papers. Several labeled gene probes hybridized to the sorted chromosomal DNA types predicted by their previous(More)
