A CLONE CONTIG OF 12Q24.3 ENCOMPASSING THE DISTAL HEREDITARY MOTOR NEUROPATHY TYPE II GENE
We previously assigned the disease locus for autosomal dominant hereditary motor neuropathy type II (distal HMN II) within a 13-cM interval at chromosome 12q24.3. We constructed a physical map of the distal HMN II region based on yeast artificial chromosomes (YACs), P1 artificial chromosomes (PACs), and bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs) using an STS content mapping approach. The contig contains 26 YAC, 15 PAC, and 60 BAC clones and covers a physical distance of approximately 5 Mb. A total of 99 STS markers, including 25 known STSs and STRs, 49 new STSs generated from clone end-fragments, 20 ESTs, and 5 known genes, were located on the contig. This physical map provides a valuable resource for mapping genes and markers located within the distal HMN II region and facilitates the positional cloning of the distal HMN II gene.
