By molecular hybridization of human calcitonin cDNA probes to DNA from human-rodent hybrid cells containing identified human chromosomes, we have mapped the human calcitonin gene to the short arm of chromosome 11. This location has been confirmed by in situ hybridization, which further localized the calcitonin gene to region 11p13-15. The significance of this region regarding gene linkage and possible markers for inherited cancers is discussed.
