Several interferon-activatable murine genes were mapped to murine chromosomes by hybridizing cDNA probes to Southern blots of genomic DNA samples from a panel of mouse-hamster somatic cell hybrid lines. The 12 gene is located on chromosome 12 and it specifies a 3.6-kb mRNA. The 204 gene (specifying a 2.5-kb mRNA), and three genes of the 203 gene family (hybridizing to five mRNAs of sizes between 2 and 4.5 kb), together with the 202 gene (specifying a 2-kb mRNA) are located on murine chromosome… CONTINUE READING
