Choroideremia (McK30310), an X-linked hereditary retinal dystrophy, causes night-blindness, progressive peripheral visual field loss, and, ultimately, central blindness in affected males. The location of choroideremia on the X chromosome is unknown. We have used restriction fragment length polymorphisms from the X chromosome to determine the regional localization of choroideremia by linkage analysis in families with this disease. One such polymorphic locus, DXYS1, located on the long arm (Xq… CONTINUE READING
