A locus in the human genome, not associated with any specific gene, has been found to be a site of restriction fragment length polymorphism. The polymorphism was found by hybridizing a 16-kilobase-pair segment of single-copy human DNA, selected from the human genome library cloned in phage lambda CH4A, to a Southern transfer of total human DNA digested with EcoRI. DNAs from a number of individuals from within Mormon pedigrees as well as random individuals have been examined. The locus is highly… CONTINUE READING
