The single copy gene coding for human alpha 1 (IV) procollagen is located at the terminal end of the long arm of chromosome 13

Hum Genet. 1986 Oct;74(2):121-5. doi: 10.1007/BF00282074.

Abstract

Using dual-laser sorted chromosomes and spot-blot analysis, we have previously assigned genomic DNA sequences coding for human alpha 1 (IV) procollagen to chromosome 13 (Pihlajaniemi et al. 1985). By in situ hybridization to normal chromosomes and chromosomes with 13q deletions, we now report the localization of this gene to the terminal end of the long arm of chromosome 13. In addition, Southern and slot blot hybridization analysis clearly show that these genomic sequences are present only once per haploid genome.
