We have mapped two new genes to chromosome 11 which control the cell-surface expression of two distinct antigens defined by monoclonal antibodies. One of the antigens has a general tissue distribution and is associated with a molecular complex of two polypeptides of 80,000 dalton and 40,000 dalton molecular weight. The second antigen has a restricted tissue distribution and is carried on a polypeptide of 100,000 daltons. We have used a combination of genetic and biochemical techniques to demonstrate that these new markers are distinct from the antigens defined by the monoclonal antibodies F10.44.2 and W6/34 which are also encoded by genes on chromosome 11. It is concluded that human chromosome 11 carries at least four distinct genes controlling cell-surface antigen expression.
