To date, transcription factors of the NFAT family (nuclear factors of activated T cells) have been described for mouse and man. Recently, we mapped the human NFAT5 gene to chromosome 16 by PCR using DNA from hybrid cell lines. Here we report the exact position of the human gene between D16S496 and WI5254 within the 16q22.1 subband, the localization of the murine gene at chromosome 8D, and the identification and mapping of the porcine counterpart to chromosome 6p1.4.
