Five polymorphic DNA segments from human chromosome 3, that are frequently deleted in lung carcinoma were mapped by non-isotopic in situ hybridization to metaphase chromosomes. The DNA segment D3S3 mapped to 3p13-p14.2, D3S6 to 3p14.3-p14.5, D3S48 to distal 3p21-p22, ERBAß to 3p24.3 and ERBA2 to 3p24.3. The map location of ERBAß and ERBA2 was confirmed by re-mapping each probe in combination with D3S6 as a marker for 3p14.
