Chromosomal localization of the type-I 15-PGDH gene to 4q34-q35

Hum Genet. 1997 Feb;99(2):279-81. doi: 10.1007/s004390050354.


The gene encoding the human NAD(+)-dependent 15-hydroxyprostaglandin dehydrogenase, designated type-I 15-PGDH, was mapped to chromosome 4 by analyzing its segregation in a panel of human-hamster somatic cell hybrids. This gene was further localized to bands 4q34-q35 by in situ hybridization on human chromosomes.
