The gene for N-acetylgalactosamine-6-sulfatase, the deficiency of which results in Morquio A syndrome (mucopolysaccharidosis type IVA), was assigned to chromosome 16 at band q24.3 by fluorescence in situ hybridization. Localization to this band was confirmed by PCR analysis of a somatic cell hybrid panel used for fine mapping of chromosome 16.
