Abstract

By means of somatic cell hybrids segregating either human or rat chromosomes, the genes encoding the transcription factor Sp1 (SP1) and the 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 receptor (VDR) were both assigned to human chromosome arm 12q and to rat chromosome 7. This result implies that the locus for the clinical disorder vitamin D dependency rickets type II maps on 12q. The phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) and the retinoic acid receptor-gamma (RARG) genes also map on human chromosome arm 12q and rat chromosome 7, indicating that a synteny group is conserved on these chromosomes.
