Localization of HLA on the short arm of chromosome 6

  • 62 Accesses

  • 34 Citations

Summary

A detailed marker gene study in a large Dutch kindred segregating for a reciprocal translocation between the chromosomes 6 and 20, t(6;20) (p21;p13), revealed a close linkage between the HLA genes and the breakpoint on the short arm of 6. During this study an apparent peak lod score of 2.9 was obtained at a recombination value of 0.05 for a linkage between HLA and the breakpoint, indicating that the chromosomal region, carrying the HLA genes, is situated near the breakpoint in band 6p21 close to the transition to 6p22.
