Chromosome mapping of the human gene encoding the 230-kDal autoantigen of an autoimmune skin disease, bullous pemphigoid, was performed using flow-sorted human chromosomes of cells of normal karyotype and cells carrying a reciprocal translocation t(6;16)(q15;q24). The cDNA of the autoantigen hybridized with intact chromosome 6 and translocation chromosome 6p-(6pter-→q15::16q24-→qter). The gene (BPA230) was located to the chromosome region 6pter-→q 15.
