Summary

The XmnI genotype at the apolipoprotein A-I locus was heterozygous in a boy with partial deletion of the long arm of chromosome 11, del(11)(q23.3→qter). The apolipoprotein A-I gene, previously assigned to chromosome region 11q23→q24, has been more specifically localized to 11q23 by excluding the region 11q24→qter.
