DNA encoding the human aminopeptidase N (EC gene (PEPN) was first isolated using rat cDNA probes and then used in Southern analysis of DNA from mouse-human somatic cell hybrids to assign this gene to the long-arm region (q11-qter) of human chromosome 15. This human genomic DNA probe detects a frequent DraIII polymorphism that is a useful marker for human chromosome 15.
