A linkage study of Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy

We have searched for linkage between polymorphic loci defined by DNA markers on the X chromosome and X-linked Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD). There are high recombination rates between EDMD and the Xp loci known to be linked to Becker and Duchenne muscular dystrophy. There is a suggestion of linkage between EDMD and the loci DXS52 and DXS15… CONTINUE READING
