A DNA probe derived from a human genomic library has been used to localize on human chromosomes a gene coding for the α-subunit of the brain type II sodium channel (SCN2A). Hybridization of the probe to Southern blots made with DNAs from a rodent-human somatic cell hybrid panel indicates localization to the long arm of human chromosome 2. In situ hybridization to metaphase chromosomes confirms this assignment and indicates regional localization to 2q21-q33. The probe also reveals a frequent two-allele HaeIII RFLP.
