The human calbindin D28k (CALB1) and calretinin (CALB2) genes are located at 8q21.3----q22.1 and 16q22----q23, respectively, suggesting a common duplication with the carbonic anhydrase isozyme loci.

Abstract

The genes encoding calbindin D28k (CALB1) and calretinin (CALB2), two closely related calcium-binding proteins, were mapped by in situ hybridization to the 8q21.3----q22.1 and 16q22----q23 regions of the human genome, respectively. These localizations match the chromosomal regions where the carbonic anhydrase isozyme gene cluster (CA1, CA2, CA3) and the… (More)
