Abstract

The human gene encoding coproporphyrinogen oxidase is the defective gene in hereditary coproporphyria. This gene was mapped to chromosome band 3q12 using fluorescent in situ hybridization. The chromosomal localization was confirmed by cosegregation of the human gene with chromosome 3 in a panel of human/rodent somatic hybrids.
