The interleukin-2 (IL2) gene was localized to the q22→q23 bands of chromosome 17 in cattle using radioactive in situ hybridization. The localization confirms the recent provisional assignment of syntenic group U23 to this bovine chromosome. Increasing evidence for chromosomal banding and gene location homology within the Bovidae suggests that the IL2 gene most likely also maps to chromosome 17 in sheep, goats and buffaloes.
