Argininosuccinate synthetase pseudogene 1 (ASSP1), interferon-β3 (IFNB3) gene, and diazepam binding inhibitor (DBI) gene have previously been mapped to human chromosome 2. Their nucleotide sequences, recorded in the GENBANK data base, were used to generate DNA primers to amplify specific sequences using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). These primers failed to amplify DNA sequences when used to analyze microcell hybrid clones containing human chromosome 2. In order to map these genes, a… Expand
Molecular cloning and chromosomal localization of a pseudogene related to the human acyl-CoA binding protein/diazepam binding inhibitor.
It is shown that ACBP/DBI is correctly placed on chromosome 2 and that the gene identified on chromosome 6 is DBIP1, a novel gene that is closely related to ACBP but is clearly distinct and which a 1-base deletion in the coding region results in a frameshift and, along with the absence of introns and the lack of a detectable transcript, suggests that DBIP 1 is a pseudogene.
