MHC class I gene organization in > 1.5-Mb YAC contigs from the H2-M region.
Sixteen yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) clones have been mapped to the H2-M region at the distal end of the mouse major histocompatibility complex (MHC) on chromosome 17. Analysis of the YACs with single- and multicopy probes yielded a proximal contig spanning a minimum of 800 kb and a distal contig of 700 kb. A probe for the conserved fourth exon of MHC class I genes detected 19 restriction fragments, including 6 of the 8 previously characterized H2-M class I genes, in the proximal contig....Expand abstract
