Abstract

The mouse brown locus encodes a tyrosinase-related protein, TRP-1. The human homolog of TRP-1 was recently cloned from a melanoma cDNA library and sequenced. We have made oligonucleotide primers corresponding to the human TRP1 3' untranslated region and used them to map the human TRP1 gene by species-specific PCR in human/rodent somatic cell hybrids. By this means, the human TRP1 gene has been mapped to the short arm of chromosome 9.
