Three human rasfamily protooncogenes, c-Ki-ras-1, and c-Ki-ras-2, and N-ras,have been mapped to chromosome bands 6p11–12, 12p11.1–12.1, and 1p11–13, respectively by in situ molecular hybridization. Certain human cancers display consistent and specific alterations involving chromosomes 1, 6, and 12. The precise chromosomal localization of ras genes will permit evaluation of thepossible effect of these chromosome changes on the structure and activities of ras protooncogenes in human neoplasia.
