HpCl, a Charon 4A bacteriophage containing a 16.3-kilobase insert of human genomic DNA, has been identified as representing the 3' portion of the human alpha 2(I) collagen gene by hybrid selected translation and cross-reactivity with characterized sheep and chick collagen genes. Evaluation of HpCl by restriction endonuclease mapping and alpha 2(I) mRNA… CONTINUE READING
