Thromboxane plays physiological and pathophysiological roles in many tissues. Recently, we cloned a cDNA for rat kidney thromboxane receptor (Tbxa2r) and showed that Tbxa2r is expressed in the renal glomerulus, vasculature, and transitional cell epithelium of renal pelvis. Here, we map the gene for this receptor (Tbxa2r) to rat chromosome 7q11 by fluorescence in situ hybridization.
