We have identified a highly polymorphic intragenic marker composed of two dinucleotide repeats in an intron of the human interferon regulatory factor (IRF3) gene. This polymorphic marker has allowed us to map IRF3 to the boundary of 19q13.3-13.4 between the polymorphic markers D19S604 and D19S206 close to KLK1. An intron is present in a homologous position in the mouse Irf3 gene, but lacks the dinucleotide repeats present in the human intron. Syntenic conservation between this region of 19q13.3-13.4 maps Irf3 to either mouse chromosome 7 or 17.
