A physical map linking the five CD1 human thymocyte differentiation antigen genes.

Human CD1 is a family of thymocyte differentiation antigens which consist of heavy chains with mol. wts between 43 and 49 kd binding to beta 2 microglobulin. They are distant relatives of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I and II products. Five human CD1 genes have been described. Three (CD1A, -B and -C) code for the serologically defined CD1a, -b and -c antigens. The protein products of the other two genes, CD1D and CD1E, remain unknown. All CD1 genes are located on chromosome 1 and hence are independent of the MHC locus. In this paper, the tight linkage of the CD1 genes has been established by pulse field gel electrophoresis, cosmid cloning and walking techniques. The 190 kb of DNA linking all five CD1 genes has been spanned by 14 overlapping cosmids. The order of the genes in the CD1 complex is CD1D-CD1A-CD1C-CD1B-CD1E, and, with the exception of CD1B, they are arranged in the same transcriptional orientation. The genes are evenly spaced in the complex except for the distance between CD1D and CD1A, which is two to three times greater than the average.[1]
