Confirmation of Duffy blood group antigen locus (FY) at 1q22-->q23 by fluorescence in situ hybridization

Cytogenet Cell Genet. 1994;67(1):68. doi: 10.1159/000133801.


The gene for the Duffy blood group antigen (FY) was previously assigned to the chromosome region 1q22-->q23 by linkage analysis. We confirm this localization by fluorescence in situ hybridization.
