The class I region of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) complex located on chromosome 6p21.3 is gene dense. To define the gene content of the class I region, we are constructing genomic DNA feature maps. Here we report mapping of the POU5F1 and TCF19 genes to an approximately 0.2-Mb region between the HLA-C and the S genes. Localization of these genes was(More)
We are applying a transposon-based approach for detecting and mapping features of special interest to construct 'feature maps' of currently uncharacterized portions of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) complex on chromosome 6. Such feature maps should facilitate identifying regions for high resolution analysis. Here we describe the feature mapping of a 35(More)
Eight major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II loci and the newly defined Y3/Ring 4 locus were isolated in overlapping yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) clones defining a 420-kb segment of human chromosome 6p21.3. YAC B1D12 spanning 320 kb contained seven of these loci from HLA-DRA to HLA-DQB2. A 330-kb YAC, A148A7, spanned from the HLA-DQA1 locus(More)
