The gene encoding human protective protein (PPGB) is on chromosome 20.

Normal lymphocyte prometaphase chromosome spreads were hybridized in situ using single- and double-color fluorescence techniques. The results obtained with either the 1.8-kb protective protein cDNA or a 12-kb genomic fragment of the human protective protein gene as probe demonstrate that the PPGB gene is localized on the long arm of chromosome 20. This assignment was confirmed by hybridization with whole chromosome DNA libraries.[1]
