Human sequences related to the transforming gene (v-myc) of avian myelocytomatosis virus (MC29) are represented by at least one gene and several related sequences that may represent pseudogenes. By using a DNA probe that is specific for the complete gene (c-myc), different somatic cell hybrids possessing varying numbers of human chromosomes were analyzed by the Southern blotting technique. The results indicate that the human c-myc gene is located on chromosome 8. The analysis of hybrids between… CONTINUE READING
