We have demonstrated the assignments of two gene loci (COLIA2, MET) and two noncoding DNA markers (D7S13, D7S8) to owl monkey chromosome 14 (K-VI) by hybridizing DNA probes from the cystic fibrosis (CF) region of human chromosome 7q21-32 to panels of rodent-owl monkey somatic cell hybrids. The assignments are substantiated by in situ chromosome hybridization of markers COLIA2, MET, and D7S13 to the distal long arm of chromosome 14 (K-VI). These results support genomic conservation of the human CF region, at least in the higher primates.
