Human apolipoprotein A-I--C-III gene complex is located on chromosome 11.

The genes for two of the apolipoproteins, apo A-I and apo C-III, previously shown to be within 3kb in the genome, were localized to human chromosome 11 by Southern blot analysis of DNA from human-rodent somatic cell hybrids. These two genes were shown to exhibit polymorphisms associated with dyslipoproteinemia and premature atherosclerosis, and it will now… CONTINUE READING
