Gene for lipoamide dehydrogenase maps to human chromosome 7.


Journal Article

The gene for lipoamide dehydrogenase (LD) has been assigned to human chromosome 7 based on filter hybridization analysis of genomic DNA from rodent-human somatic cell hybrids using a cDNA probe for human LD. No indication of multiple copies of the gene was found, in accordance with previous evidence that LD in the pyruvate, alpha-ketoglutarate, and branched chain alpha-ketoacid dehydrogenase complexes is genetically as well as biochemically identical.
