  • As part of an effort to characterize the hemochromatosis gene, we selected three non-chimeric yeast artificial chromosomes (YACs) overlapping with the YAC B30 previously described and forming an 800 kilobase contig covering theHLA-A/HLA-F region. The precise physical map of these YACs and of the corresponding genomic region were established. Nine concentrated sites of CpG cutter elements, potentially HTF islands, were mapped. In addition, several probes have been generated as tools for mapping… CONTINUE READING
