Human ferritin light chain gene sequences mapped to several sorted chromosomes
- 40 Downloads
The iron storage ferritin light-chain gene exhibits multiple restriction enzyme fragments which have been mapped by analyzing sorted human chromosomes. A dual laser chromosome sorter was used to construct spot-blot filter panels representing 22 chromosome fractions. Hybridization of radiolabeled human ferritin-L gene probe to spot-blot panels revealed the ferritin-L gene on more than one chromosome. Miniaturized restriction enzyme analysis was used to map each of the ferritin-L restriction fragments uniquely to one of three chromosomes. This combination of sorted chromosome analyses provides a rapid method to map homologous DNA sequences located on more than one chromosome.
