AMOG, identified as an adhesion molecule that mediates neuron-astrocyte interaction, has structural similarity to the β-subunit of Na,K ATPase. We have mapped the AMOG gene to human chromosome 17 and mouse chromosome 11 by somatic cell hybrid analysis. Recombinant inbred strain mapping has placed the Amog locus close to genes for zinc finger protein-3 and the asialoglycoprotein receptor in a region of mouse chromosome 11 that is homologous to human 17p.
