ABSTRACT We have made a regional assignment of the type II collagen gene (COL2A1) on human chromosome 12 by means of an in situ hybridization technique with a biotinylated DNA probe. The precise localization of the signal was mapped to the band 12q13.1-q13.2. This result was in agreement with the previous mapping by isotopic in situ hybridization technique (12q13.1-q13.2), but not with the result of Southern hybridization analysis using somatic cell hybrids (12q14.3).
