Abstract

Fragments of the recently cloned human gene for the β subunit of nerve growth factor (β-NGF) were used as hybridization probes in analyzing two sets of rodent-human somatic cell hybrids for the presence of human β-NGF sequences. Results from the first set of hybrids assigned the human β-NGF gene to chromosome 1 and ruled out the presence of sequences of comparable homology on any other chromosome. With the second set of hybrids, which contained seven different, but overlapping, regions of chromosome 1, the NGF locus was mapped to band 1p22.
