The gene for human fibroblast interferon (IFB) maps to 9p21


The interferons have been classified into alpha, beta, and gamma (leukocyte, fibroblast, and immune). We used a human genomic clone for β1 interferon IFB to determine the gene copy number in two patients with unbalanced rearrangements of 9p. Our results provide evidence for regional assignment of this gene to 9p21.
