Author information

Department of Breeding and Genetics, Danish Institute of Animal Science, Tjele, Denmark.


The chromosome localization of the gene encoding growth hormone (GH) was determined by Southern blotting of DNA obtained from a panel of common shrew x Chinese hamster and common shrew x mouse hybrid somatic cell clones using mink GH DNA as a probe. The GH gene was found to be localized on chromosome hn of the common shrew.
