Summary

A cloned, 40 kb, genomic DNA fragment, containing the last exon of the gene for human cytochrome c oxidase subunit VIb and its flanking sequences, was used as a probe to localize the subunit VIb gene on human metaphase chromosomes. The probe was labelled with Bio-11-dUTP and detected by fluorescence. Subsequent R-banding indicated that the cytochrome c oxidase subunit VIb gene is localized in band 19q13.1, extending the evidence that the human nuclear genes of cytochrome c oxidase are not clustered.
