Using Southern blot analysis it is demonstrated that S-100 alpha and beta genes were found as single copies in the rat genome. S-100 alpha mRNA was not found at all in rat brain during the developmental period, but it was slightly detectable in muscle and kidney. S-100 beta mRNA was detected in rat brain, and its mRNA level increased during the developmental period. The different localizations of the subunits may be due to the specific expression of each gene in various tissues.
