Eight cosmid clones were regionally assigned to small subregions of chromosome 22 by hybridization with a total of 22 somatic cell hybrids. One cosmid was localized to the proximal part of 22q which contained the region commonly deleted in the DiGeorge syndrome. Seven cosmids showing restriction fragment length polymorphisms were localized to the telomeric region distal to the MB locus, which was reported to be frequently deleted in sporadic meningioma. These cosmids, when finely mapped and ordered, are considered useful for the identification of genetic alterations on this chromosome arm.
