Clones encoding the entire coding and 3' untranslated region of the human type I tumor necrosis factor receptor (p60) gene (TNFR1) were isolated by hybridization using probes derived from TNFR-1 cDNA. The gene was characterized by restriction mapping. DNA blot analysis and sequence analysis. The coding region and the 3' untranslated region are distributed over 10 exons. Each of the four repeats, comprising the extracellular ligand binding domain and characterizing a receptor superfamily, is interrupted by an intron. However, the intron-exon structure is not conserved in the nerve growth factor receptor gene, another member of this superfamily. By PCR analysis of human-mouse somatic cell hybrids and in situ hybridization using biotinylated genomic TNFR1 DNA, we localized the gene to human chromosomal band 12p13. This corresponds to the homologous murine gene localized at the distal region of mouse chromosome 6.
