Hereditary cystatin C amyloid angiopathy has recently been shown to be caused by a point mutation in the cystatin C gene. To determine the chromosomal localization of the gene, 20 human-rodent somatic cell hybrids and a full-length cystatin C cDNA probe were used. Southern blot analysis of BamHI digested cell hybrid DNA revealed that the probe recognizes a(More)
The human genes encoding the alpha and beta forms of the retinoic acid receptor are known to be located on chromosomes 17 (band q21.1:RARA) and 3 (band p24:RARB). By in situ hybridization, we have now localized the gene for retinoic acid receptor gamma, RARG, on chromosome 12, band q13. We also mapped the three retinoic acid receptor genes in the mouse, by(More)
The current status of the rat gene map is presented. Mapping information is now available for a total of 214 loci and the number of mapped genes is increasing steadily. The corresponding number of loci quoted at HGM10 was 128. Genes have been assigned to 20 of the 22 chromosomes in the rat. Some aspects of comparative mapping with mouse and man are also(More)
Twelve loci have been assigned to rat chromosome 5: aldolase B (ALDOB), atrial natriuretic factor (ANF = pronatriodilatin, PND), D4RP1, DSI1, galactosyltransferase (GGTB2), glucose transporter (GLUT1), interferon alpha 1 and related interferon alpha (INFA), interferon beta (INFB), lymphocyte-specific protein-tyrosine kinase (LCK), oncogene MOS, alpha(More)
Human IFI-15K and 6-16 genes are transcriptionally stimulated by interferons, double-stranded RNA, and viruses. By screening a cDNA library with oligodeoxynucleotide probes, we have isolated complete copies corresponding to these two genes. These cDNA clones allowed us to localize the IFI-15K and 6-16 genes on human chromosome 1 by somatic cell(More)
During the last decade, evidence has been forthcoming in support of the correlation between heteromorphism of human chromosome 1qh and the incidence of various malignancies in the carriers of such heteromorphism. We present data from a family with hereditary predisposition to cancer. In this family, five members in a sibship of seven developed ovary and/or(More)
Cell fusion studies have demonstrated that malignancy can be suppressed by a single dose of malignancy suppressor genes (MSGs), indicating that malignancy is a recessive phenotype. Correspondingly, it is widely believed that mutational inactivation of both alleles of tumor suppressor genes (TSGs), in familial and sporadic tumors, is the formal proof of the(More)
A prospective study was carried-out in the department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Institute of Postgraduate Medicine & Research (IPGMR) now Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) during a period of 9 months starting from 1st April to 31st December 1996 to find out the probable causes of Cerebral Palsy (CP), the types of CP and(More)
By means of somatic cell hybrids segregating either human or rat chromosomes, we determined the chromosome localization of three genes encoding transcription factors expressed in hepatocytes, namely, C/EBP (CCAAT/enhancer binding protein), DBP (D site of albumin promoter binding protein), and HNF1/LFB-1 (designated transcription factor 1, gene symbol:(More)
