A physical map of the human salivary proline-rich protein gene cluster covers over 700 kbp of DNA.

By using a linking library, we have experimentally linked, ordered, and spaced four of the six loci that constitute the human salivary proline-rich protein ( PRP) multigene family. The methods used for mapping these four PRP genes may be useful in other multigene systems in which no probes unique to each member of genes are available, but in which some enzyme site that occurs only once in each member of the family can be found. The remaining two PRP loci have been provisionally mapped and linked within the gene cluster primarily on the basis of the resulting order giving a simple map. The order of the six loci that most simply accounts for our data is PRB2, PRB1, PRB4, PRH2, PRB3, and PRH1. The PRP gene cluster spans at least 700 kbp on chromosome 12 at p13. 2. A scheme for the evolution of the cluster that requires an initial gene duplication followed by three unequal but homologous crossovers is given.[1]
