Using fluorescence in situ hybridization, the human GATA4 gene, a member of the zinc-finger protein family recognizing the consensus GATA motif, was mapped to 8p23.1-->p22. This result, in conjunction with gene mapping data on other GATA-DNA binding proteins, suggests that genes encoding GATA-DNA binding proteins are dispersed throughout the genome, rather than clustered within a single locus.
