The single copy parathyroid hormone-like peptide gene (Pthlh) was mapped to distal mouse chromosome 6 using genetic linkage analysis with a panel of DNA samples from interspecific backcross mice. In all 114 meiotic events examined, the Pth/h locus cosegregated with the locus for the Kirsten ras-2 gene (Kras-2) which was previously localized to distal mouse chromosome 6. In addition, Pthlh was localized to chromosome 6 band F-G and the mouse parathyroid hormone Pth was localized to chromosome 7 band F, by in situ hybridization. These studies confirm the previous localization of Pthlh to mouse chromosome 6 using somatic cell hybrids and show that the Pthlh/PTHLH locus is a part of a conserved linkage group between distal mouse chromosome 6 and the proximal segment of the short arm of human chromosome 12.
