The National Institute of General Medical Sciences' (NIGMS) Human Genetic
Mutant Cell Repository has regional mapping panels available for
distribution as cell cultures or DNA. These mapping panels, consisting of 5
to 10 human/rodent somatic cell hybrids with deletion or derivative human
chromosomes, are available for chromosomes 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11, 13, 15,
16, 17, 18, 21, 22, and X. Regional mapping panels for additional human
chromosomes will be available in the near future. The panels have been
characterized cytogenetically by G-banded chromosome analysis, in situ
hybridization using biotinylated total human DNA, and, in some cases, with
chromosome-specific painting probes.  Molecular characterization included
Southern blot hybridization and/or PCR with p and q arm probes and primers.
Information about these cultures and DNA is available via the world wide
web ( or by contact with the Repository.
