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…

Interferon-beta-related DNA is dispersed in the human genome.

The finding that DNA related to theIFN-beta 1 gene (and IFN-alpha 1 gene) is dispersed in the human genome raises new questions about the origins of the interferon genes.

Putative diazepam binding inhibitor peptide: cDNA clones from rat.

RNA blot analysis of genomic DNA suggests the presence of about six genes in the rat, some of which may be pseudogenes, and an abundance of diazepam binding inhibitor mRNA in many peripheral organs that are known to be rich in peripheral benzodiazepine recognition sites.
