Peggy- I would recommend giving the mouse probe a try.  I have mapped
several mouse genes to human chromosomes-it can work with both genomic and
cDNA clones.  cDNAs have a problem with size frequently that puts them
below the level of sensitivity for FISH.  If it is >2.5 kb, it might work.
If it is small, you'll need to try the genomic.  Use COT-1 DNA to compete
out repetative elements.
