Localization of the human tripeptidyl peptidase II gene (TPP2) to 13q32-q33 by nonradioactive in situ hybridization and somatic cell hybrids.


PMID 8406500

Abstract

We have assigned the human tripeptidyl peptidase II (TPP2) gene to chromosome region 13q32-q33 using two different methods. First, a full-length TPP2 cDNA was used as a probe on Southern blots of DNA from a panel of human/rodent somatic cell hybrids. The TPP2 sequences were found to segregate with the human chromosome 13. Second, fluorescence in situ hybridization analysis was performed with the same probe. This analysis supported the chromosome 13 localization and further refined it to region 13q32-q33.
