The gene for the human mineralocorticoid receptor (MLR) was previously localized to chromosome 4. Here, we have localized this gene to 4q31.2 by in situ hybridization. This precise mapping of MLR will assist in the linkage analysis and genetic characterization of pseudohypoaldosteronism, an autosomal recessive disorder which likely results from a defect in the MLR gene.
