Question

A panel of cell lines was created by human–mouse somatic-cell
hybridization. Each line was examined for the presence of human
chromosomes and for the production of an enzyme. The following
results were obtained: 

Cell
Human chromosomes
line Enzyme 1
2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 17 22
B
+ + +
D
E
On the basis of these results, which chromosome has the gene that
encodes the enzyme?
