Using analysis of rodent-human somatic cell hybrids as well as in situ hybridization of hexabrachion cDNA probes to normal human metaphase chromosomes, we have localized the human hexabrachion gene to chromosome 9, bands q32-q34. We also put forward the hypothesis that there has been a recent reduplication of a small segment of the human hexabrachion gene.(More)
Utilizing a cDNA clone encoding the oligodendrocyte-myelin glycoprotein (OMgp) to screen a human genomic DNA library, we have obtained a clone that contains the OMgp gene. The genomic clone was restriction mapped and the OMgp gene and its 5' and 3' flanking regions were sequenced. A single intron is found in the 5' untranslated region of the gene, while the(More)
The structure of the gene encoding human hexabrachion (tenascin) has been determined from overlapping clones isolated from a human genomic bacteriophage library. The genomic inserts were characterized by restriction mapping, Southern blot analysis, PCR, and DNA sequencing. The coding region of the hexabrachion gene spans approximately 80 kilobases of DNA(More)
Traditionally, few child psychiatrists have opted for careers as senior managers in academic medical centers, preferring to emphasize their clinical role and hoping their clinical work will be valued and reimbursed despite economic pressures. Yet the career of a hospital-wide manager in an academic medical center provides opportunities to promote an(More)
