Abstract

The human platelet-activating factor cell-surface receptor (PTAFR) is a G protein-coupled receptor thought to contribute to many atopic and inflammatory diseases and, perhaps, to the growth of some neoplasms. Exploring the possibility that the PTAFR might be involved in the genetic predisposition to any disease requires knowledge of its chromosomal localization. In this paper we have used a 20-kb human genomic fragment containing the coding sequence of the cloned PTAFR to determine the regional chromosomal localization of the gene. Using fluorescence in situ hybridization, the localization of the human PTAFR gene was mapped to 1p35→p34.3.
