The gene for human p53 cellular tumor antigen is located on chromosome 17 short arm (17p13).


A clone that cross-hybridizes with a mouse p53 probe has been isolated from a cDNA library of simian virus 40-transformed human fibroblasts. This cloned human p53 cDNA was used as a probe to examine DNAs obtained from human-rodent somatic cell hybrids that have segregated human chromosomes. The results show that the human p53 gene is located on chromosome 17. In addition, Southern analysis of hybrids prepared from human cells containing a chromosome 17 translocation allowed regional localization of the human p53 gene to the most distal band on the short arm of this chromosome (17p13). Localization of the p53 gene to 17p13 was confirmed by in situ hybridization of metaphase spreads with the human p53 probe.
