Human vascular smooth muscle actin gene (ACTSA) was cloned and its unique sequence was used as the hybridization probe for Southern blot analysis of DNAs from 18 rodent-human somatic cell hybrids; the gene was assigned to human chromosome 10. Regional mapping by in situ hybridization showed that the gene is located on the long arm (q22-q24) of the chromosome. Thus, the gene is on a different chromosome from the other four actin genes so far examined.
