Assignment of the 36.5-kDa (RFC5), 37-kDa (RFC4), 38-kDa (RFC3), and 40-kDa (RFC2) subunit genes of human replication factor C to chromosome bands 12q24.2-q24.3, 3q27, 13q12.3-q13, and 7q11.23.

Replication factor C is a multimeric primer-recognition protein consisting of five subunits (p145, p40, p38, p37, and p36.5) and is essential for the processive elongation of DNA chains catalyzed by DNA polymerase delta or epsilon in human cells. We have mapped the locations on human chromosomes of the genes coding for the four smaller subunits [p36.5 (RFC5), p37 (RFC4), p38 (RFC3), and p40 (RFC2)] using both PCR amplification from DNAs of a panel of somatic hybrids and fluorescence in situ hybridization to bands 12q24.2-q24.3, 3q27, 13q12.3-q13, and 7q11.23, respectively.
