Original Investigations


The human FcγRI gene encodes for a highaffinity Fcγ receptor that plays pivotal roles in the immune response. We have used fluorescence in situ hybridization analysis to localize the FcγRI gene to human chromosome 1. The human FcγRI (CD64) gene has been assigned to human chromosome 1q21.2-q21.3 using R-banded human (pro)metaphase chromosomes.
