Blue cone pigment (BCP) is one of three types of cone photoreceptors responsible for normal colour vision. In this study, the BCP gene has been localised to chromosome 7q31.3-32 by fluorescent in situ hybridisation of cosmid clones containing the gene. This is consistent with previous mapping of the BCP gene to chromosome 7q31-35.
