For additional information on oncogenes and their association with cancer see Watson et al. (1987 Chapts. 26 and 27) and Bishop (1985). c-Ha-ras1 is located on chromosome #11 near the beta-globin gene family (Human Gen Mapping 9 1987). The gene encodes a 189 amino acid protein (the p21 protein) localized in the cell membrane, whose normal function is unknown. Activation of the gene to the oncogene found in cell lines derived from certain bladder and lung cancers results from a single base substitution (G-T) which alters the 12th amino acid of the p21 protein from valine to glycine (Reddy et al.

Sec. 12] The number and distribution of genes 25 Fig. 12 —Increase in our knowledge of the human gene map since 1973. (Data from Human Gene Mapping 9 (1987) and references cited therein). 12). In the 34 years since 1956 we have progressed from establishing the correct human chromosome number, to knowing the chromosomal location of over 1000 genes, representing perhaps 10% of all genes. These advances have been made possible by exploiting certain peculiar properties of somatic cell hybrids made by fusing human and rodent cells, and more recently by applying recombinant DNA techniques.

G. the genes that encode the protein actin are found on chromosomes #1, #7, and #15), or may be clustered in close proximity on a single chromosome, examples being the histocompatibility genes on chromosome #6, histone A genes (#7), leukocyte interferon genes (#11), and immunoglobulin heavy chain genes (#14) (McKusick 1986). In much of the remainder of this section, it is proposed to single out for illustrative purposes and describe in some detail, particular regions of the human genome. No attempt Sec.
