We previously mapped susceptibility to stroke to chromosome 5q12. Here we finely mapped this locus and tested it for association with stroke. We found the strongest association in the gene encoding phosphodiesterase 4D (PDE4D), especially for carotid and cardiogenic stroke, the forms of stroke related to atherosclerosis. Notably, we found that haplotypes(More)
The gene for the androgen receptor, mutations at which cause the X-linked androgen insensitivity syndrome, has been localized to the q11----q12 region of the human X chromosome by analysis, using a cloned cDNA for the androgen receptor, of somatic cell hybrid panels segregating portions of the X chromosome. A moderate-frequency HindIII RFLP has been found(More)
Sixty-eight independent hybrid clones were isolated after irradiated normal human lymphocytes were fused with Chinese hamster fibroblasts lacking hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase activity. The cells were grown under selective conditions requiring retention of the X chromosome-linked locus for human hypoxanthine-guanine(More)
Cell growth in 'ornithine-medium' requires the expression of two liver-specific genes, those for ornithine transcarbamoylase (OTC) and carbamoyl phosphate synthetase I (CPS-I). CPS-II appears unable to replace CPS-I in this system. The need for N-acetylglutamate (to activate CPS-I) can be met, at least in part, by providing it in the medium. The other gene(More)
Hybrid cells were obtained by virus-induced fusion of hamster cells with irradiated human cells. The analysis of such hybrids permits a study of the effects of lethal doses of radiation on human cells and provides a method of sub-chromosomal genetic mapping that is independent of karyological analysis. Radiation-induced chromosome exchanges are shown to be(More)
A method is described which should permit determination of the order and spacing of genes on all human chromosomes by the analysis of just one set of man-mouse hybrid cells. This method is used to determine the map of 8 loci on human chromosome I. A comparison of the statistical maps of chromosome I and of the X-chromosome with the cytogenetic maps of these(More)
We have used a cDNA clone for human phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK) to examine the chromosomal localization of three members of the human PGK gene family. Using somatic cell hybrids segregating portions of several X-autosome translocations as well as a clone panel of hybrids segregating radiation-induced fragments of the human X chromosome, we assign a PGK(More)
Using a variety of genetic methods, it is shown in this paper that the genes GLA, G6PD, HPRT, and PGK are X-linked in the vole Microtus subarvalis. The order of these genes has been investigated in two vole species, M. subarvalis and M. kirgisorum, by using the mapping technique of Goss and Harris (1977a, b), which depends on the analysis of(More)
