The gene for the human cysteine proteinase inhibitor stefin A (STF1), alias cystatin A, has been mapped to chromosome 3, using the polymerase chain reaction to specifically amplify the human stefin A sequence in human-hamster hybrid DNA. STF1 is further sublocalized to regions between centromere and 3q21 using a deletion mapping panel for this chromosome. This assignment shows that stefin A is not syntenic with cystatin C which has been localized to chromosome 20.
