A linkage study of a large pedigree with X linked centronuclear myopathy.

Abstract

Centronuclear myopathy (CNM) is a muscle wasting disorder that occurs in three distinct forms. Previous studies have shown linkage between the X linked form of the disease and the Xq28 probes ST14, DX13, and F8C. Our study on a previously unreported, three generation, X linked CNM family confirms linkage between these markers and the CNM locus (Z = 3.21, theta = 00). However, results from the laboratory of J-L Mandel (Samson and Hanover, personal communication) on a number of X linked CNM families exclude genetic linkage from the region Xq26-qter, suggesting genetic heterogeneity in this condition.
