The chromosomal localization of TRK, a gene coding for a putative receptor molecule with an associated tyrosine kinase activity that we have found activated in 25% of patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma, was determined by Southern blot analysis of a panel of human-rodent somatic cells using a cDNA clone containing the entire human TRK proto-oncogene (Martin-Zanca et al., 1986). The TRK gene was assigned to chromosome 1. One hybrid that had retained only the short arm of the human chromosome 1 was negative. Subsequently, in situ hybridization of the same probe to human metaphase chromosomes localized the TRK gene to 1q32-q41.
