A multiple interval physical map of the pericentromeric region of human chromosome 10


Five intervals in the pericentromeric region of human chromosome 10 have been defined using a panel of somatic cell hybrids carrying portions of the chromosome. The map positions of twelve markers, consisting of four genes and eight anonymous DNA segments, have been localized by assignment to one of the five intervals. Several other markers could be placed in specific intervals by genetic linkage to assigned loci. When previously published data are incorporated, the summary map of the pericentromeric region encompasses thirty-two loci in bands 10p11.2-q11.2.
