Close linkage of the Wilsons's disease locus to D13S12 in the chromosomal region 13q21 and not to ESD in 13q14


Wilson's disease (WD) is an autosomal recessive disorder resulting in copper accumulation notably in liver and brain tissue. Linkage of the WD locus (WND) to ESD at 13q14 was first shown by studies in families of Middle Eastern origin using the isozymic polymorphism of esterase D. Using RFLPs detected by the ESD cDNA we could not confirm this reported close… (More)
