Abstract

Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) of markers at chromosome 8p is frequently noted in many different tumour types, including colorectal cancer. Numerous investigations indicate the presence of more than tumour suppressor gene (TSG) located on 8p. In this study, we describe a detailed LOH map in colorectal cancer and relate this to physical mapping data from reduced radiation 8p hybrids, yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) co-localisation of markers and fluorescence in situ hybridisation data. These data indicate the presence of two regions harbouring putative TSG's between the polymorphic markers for the LPL gene-D8S298 (approximately 4 Mb) and the markers D8S136-D8S137 (approximately 8 Mb). Yeast Artificial Chromosomes (YAC) have been isolated from these regions of interest to aid the localisation of the putative TSG's.
