Citrate synthase (CS) is a key enzyme of the Krebs tricarboxylic acid cycle. A 1.4 kb porcine CS cDNA probe was used to chromosomally localize the CS gene in pigs by in situ hybridization. Two in situ hybridization experiments were conducted. Although the first experiment indicated a distinct signal on the 5p12‐p13 bands, a secondary signal was observed on the 13q24‐q32 bands. Hence, a second in situ hybridization experiment was conducted at higher stringency. The results demonstrated a consistent signal on the 5p12‐p13 bands, and the signal on chromosome 13 was scattered with no prominent secondary peak. The CS gene was therefore assigned to the p12‐p13 bands of chromosome 5 in pigs.
