Human sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) is a plasma steroid transport protein which is known to be encoded by an autosomal gene. We have hybridized two separate cDNA probes, corresponding to the 5’ and 3’ portions of the coding sequence for SHBG, to human metaphase chromosomes in situ. In this way, the SHBG gene has been localized to the p12→p13 bands of chromosome 17.
