Assignment of the human cytochrome c1 gene to chromosome 8

Biochem Int. 1988 Apr;16(4):655-60.


We previously isolated a cDNA clone for human cytochrome c1. The insert DNA of approximately 950 bp from this clone was used as a probe to identify the cytochrome c1 gene. High molecular weight DNAs extracted from a panel of 14 independent human-mouse somatic cell hybrids were digested with BamHI and analyzed by Southern blot hybridization. The results indicated that the gene for human cytochrome c1 is located on chromosome 8.
