Abstract

We have determined the chromosomal location of seven human neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor subunit genes by genomic Southern analysis of hamster/human somatic cell hybrid DNAs. The beta 2 subunit gene was localized to human chromosome 1, the alpha 2 and beta 3 subunit genes were localized to human chromosome 8, the alpha 3, alpha 5, and beta 4 subunit genes were localized to human chromosome 15, and the alpha 4 subunit gene was localized to human chromosome 20. Mapping of the beta 2 subunit gene to chromosome 1 establishes a syntenic group with the amylase gene locus on human chromosome 1 and mouse chromosome 3, while mapping of the alpha 3 subunit gene to chromosome 15 confirms the existence of a syntenic group with the mannose phosphate isomerase gene locus on human chromosome 15 and mouse chromosome 9.
