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)
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)
Rearranged human chromosomes carrying segments of chromosome 11 were separated from the normal chromosome 11 by high-resolution chromosome sorting. Sorted chromosomes were tested with parathyroid hormone, β-globin, insulin, and LDH-A gene-specific probes to determine the genes carried by each chromosome segment. Based on the gene content and karyotypes of(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)
Through hybridization of specific Chinese hamster cell auxotrophs with human cells and selection in media lacking the nutritional supplements required by the former cells, a series of stable hybrid clones can be prepared. These hybrids have genomes consisting of a common part--the complete or almost complete set of Chinese hamster chromosomes, plus a(More)
Recombinant bacteriophage lambda from a human genomic library were screened to indentify human DNA inserts having only unique sequences. Unique human inserts were found in about 1% of the phage screened. One recombinant phage, P3-2, was studied in detail. It contains a human insert of 14.7 kilobases with four internal EcoRI cleavage sites. A restriction map(More)

A procedure has been described for microdissection and microcloning of human chromosomal DNA sequences in which universal amplification of the dissected fragments by Mbo I linker adaptor and polymerase chain reaction is used. A very large library comprising 700,000 recombinant plasmid microclones from 30 dissected chromosomes of human chromosome 21 was(More)
An auxotrophic mutant, GAT-, derived from the Chinese hamster cell line CHO-K1 and exhibiting multiple growth requirements for glycine, adenine, and thymidine, has been shown to be deficient in one of the folate-dependent enzymes, folylpolyglutamate synthetase (FPGS). This mutant was fused with normal human lymphocytes and human lymphoblasts and 41 GAT+(More)
