Summary

We have synthesised a mixed oligonucleotide 17 bases long and used it to isolate cDNA clones for apolipoprotein CI (apo CI) from an adult liver cDNA library. The partial sequence of one of these clones confirms its identity. We have used this probe and Southern blotting techniques to identify the human apo CI gene in DNA from a series of rodent x human somatic cell hybrids. Our Results provide evidence for the assignment of this gene to human chromosome 19.
