The distal long arm of chromosome 10 harbors genes of biomedical interest such as MXI1, a putative tumor suppressor gene, and those encoding the adrenergic receptors alpha2A (ADRA2A) and beta1 (ADRB1). As part of a physical and genetic study of this genomic region, we constructed a 1.5-Mb YAC contig mapping to 10q25 that contains MXI1 and ADRA2A as well as(More)
We used several microsatellite markers scattered along the X chromosome to search for linkage relationships in a large Sardinian pedigree segregating for nonspecific X-linked mental retardation (MRX). Markers DXS573 and AR, located at chromosomal subregions Xp11.4-p11.22 and Xq11.2-q12, respectively, were found to segregate in full concordance with the(More)
