Pseudoachondroplasia (PSACH) and multiple epiphyseal dysplasia (MED) are dominantly inherited chondrodysplasias characterized by short stature and early–onset osteoarthrosis. The disease genes in families with PSACH and MED have been localized to an 800 kilobase interval on the short arm of chromosome 19. Recently the gene for cartilage oligomeric matrix(More)
Activation of various immune cell types can be prevented by negative signaling receptors. Natural killer (NK) cells, which can lyse tumor or virus-infected cells, express inhibitory receptors that recognise distinct ‘self’ class I molecules of the major histocompatibility complex [1]. Recognition of self class I molecules results in a negative signal to(More)
Fanconi anemia (FA) is an inherited human disorder associated with a predisposition to cancer and characterized by anomalies in the processing of DNA cross-links and certain monoadducts. We reported previously that the frequency of psoralen-photoinduced mutations at the HPRT locus is lower in FA cells than in normal cells. This hypomutability is shown here(More)
Familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM) is an autosomal domianant subtype of migraine with attacks, associated with transient episodes of hemiparesis. One of the genes for FHM has been assigned to chromosome 19p13. Detailed analysis of critical recombinants from two different chromosome 19-linked FHM families, using new markers indicated a 6-cM candidate region(More)
A long-range physical map of the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) gene family cluster, which is located on the long arm of chromosome 19, has been constructed. This was achieved by hybridization analysis of large DNA fragments separated by pulse-field gel electrophoresis and of DNA from human/rodent somatic celJ hybrids, as well as the assembly of ordered(More)
The germline DNA sequence of the human CD79a (Ig-α/mb-1) gene was determined by polymerase chain reaction sequencing of a cosmid clone derived from an arrayed human chromosome 19 library .The CD79a gene was localized to chromosome 19q13.2; this localization places the gen within the CEA-like gene cluster with the following gene order:(More)
Free fatty acids are the major source of fuel for mammals, and hormone sensitive lipase (LIPE) plays a critical role in lipid metabolism by mobilizing free fatty acids from stored triglycerides. We have identified and sequenced a partial cDNA for LIPE. Cosmids were identified by hybridization and mapped to 19q13.1-->q13.2 by FISH. Direct sequence analysis(More)
