The EIF3S3 gene encoding the p40 subunit of the translation initiation factor eIF3 has eight exons and maps to the Langer-Giedion syndrome chromosome region on 8q24, but is not the TRPS1 gene


We have mapped the gene encoding the p40 subunit of the eukaryotic translation initiation factor eIF3 (EIF3S3) close to the distal border of the minimal critical region for tricho-rhino-phalangeal syndrome type I (TRPS I) on human chromosome 8q24. Because this location makes EIF3S3 a candidate for the TRPS1 gene, we have determined the genomic structure of… (More)
