Thyrotropin (TSH) is composed of two subunits: α and β. Previously, we have mapped the TSHα gene to human chromosome 6 and mouse chromosome 4. In this study we have located the human TSHβ gene on chromosome 1 and the mouse TSHβ gene to chromosome 3. These data suggest that the TSHβ gene lies in a conserved linkage group with the genes for amylase 1 and 2, nerve growth factor, and the protooncogene Nras.
