Summary

We used a cloned cDNA probe for human growth hormone and Southern blotting techniques to analyze DNA from a series of rodentxhuman somatic cell hybrids for the presence of growth hormone-related sequences. Our results provide evidence for the assignment of the genes for growth hormone and chorionic somatomammotropin as well as a growth hormone-like gene to human chromosome 17. Analysis of mousexhuman hybrid cells containing only part of the long arm of chromosome 17 enabled us to localize these genes to region 17q21→17qter.
