The human moesin gene (MSN) was mapped to the long arm of the X chromosome. PCR products for the moesin gene cDNA were used as probes to isolate their corresponding cosmid clones. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) with two of the isolated cosmid probes showed signals at Xq11.2-->q12, whereas four other cosmids showed FISH signals on chromosome 5. Southern blot hybridization, using a PCR product corresponding to the 3' region of the moesin gene cDNA as a probe (probe-3), on one of the two cosmids that produced signals on the X chromosome gave 5.7- and 3.5-kb HindIII fragments. Further Southern hybridization of the DNA from XY, XX, and XXXXX individuals using probe-3 revealed a gene-dose effect of the X chromosome on the size of a 3.5-kb and a 3.0-kb HindIII fragment; in contrast, an invariant 9.8-kb band was present in the DNA of all individuals tested. Sequencing of an exon-intron border revealed that the two cosmids had predicted sequences. These results indicated that the two cosmids contained MSN, and it was consequently assigned to human chromosome region Xq11.2-->q12. These results strongly suggest that MSN may be removed from candidacy for Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, which has been putatively mapped to Xp11.3-->p11.22.
