Localization of the human phosphotyrosine phosphatase-related genes (h-PRL-1) to chromosome bands 1p35–p34, 17q12–q21, 11q24–q25 and 12q24

Abstract

The h-PRL-1 gene codes for a new phosphotyrosine phosphatase that may play an important role in the control of basic cellular processes such as cell growth and proliferation. Using the cDNA of the h-PRL-1 gene as a probe, we examined a somatic mouse and hamster × human hybrid panel and found that chromosomes 1, 17 and 11 harbor sequences homologous to h-PRL-1. By in situ hybridization of metaphase spreads, subchromosomal localizations were determined at bands 1p35–p34, 17q12– q21 and 11q24–q25; in addition, a faint signal was detected at 12q24. The chromosomal assignment of the genes homologous to h-PRL-1 will help the investigation of its possible involvement in human diseases involving genetic alteration at these chromosomal regions.
