Summary

A cDNA probe corresponding to mRNA encoding human uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase (URO-D) was used to determine the chromosomal localization of the URO-D gene in the human genome. In agreement with previous studies, we have found that the locus for URO-D is located on chromosome 1 in hybrid cell mapping panels. The use of in sity hybridization allowed us to map the URO-D locus to band 1p34.
