Abstract

The Moloney leukemia virus integration 2 (MLVI2) locus represents a common region for proviral integration and a putative oncogene involved in the induction of thymic lymphomas in rodents. The human homolog of the MLVI2 locus has been cloned and studies have been intiated to determine its possible role in the induction and progression of human neoplasms. In this study we used a panel of human × rodent somatic cell hybrids and in situ hybridization to metaphase chromosomes to map MLVI2 to the short arm of the human chromosome 5, band p14.
