The human homologs of the mouse homeo box-containing genes, En-1 and En-2, which show homology to the Drosophila engrailed gene, have been isolated. The human EN1 gene was mapped to chromosome 2 by analysis of mouse-human somatic cell hybrids. The human EN2 gene was localized to chromosome 7, 7q32-7qter, by analysis of rodent-human somatic cell hybrids and cell lines carrying portions of chromosome 7.
