Assignment of the TCP1 locus to the long arm of human chromosome 6 by in situ hybridization

Cytogenet Cell Genet. 1987;45(2):109-12. doi: 10.1159/000132439.


TCP1, the human homolog of the Tcp-1 locus in the mouse, which is part of the murine t complex and codes for an abundant testicular germ-cell protein, has been mapped within the human genome by in situ hybridization. Using a cDNA probe for TCP1, pB1.4 hum, we assigned TCP1 to human chromosome region 6q23----qter, with the most likely localization being 6q25----q27.
