A rat cDNA probe for preprocarboxypeptidase A was used to follow the segregation of the human gene for carboxypeptidase A (CPA) in 49 human x mouse somatic cell hybrids using Southern filter hybridization techniques. CPA was assigned to human chromosome 7q22→qter. Similarly, the probe was used to follow the segregation of the mouse gene for carboxypeptidase A (Cpa) in 19 mouse x Chinese hamster somatic cell hybrids. Cpa was assigned to mouse chromosome 6. The gene for carboxypeptidase A forms part of a syntenic group that is conserved in man and mouse.
