Closing in on the Rieger syndrome gene on 4q25: mapping translocation breakpoints within a 50-kb region.


Rieger syndrome (RGS) is an autosomal dominant disorder of morphogenesis affecting mainly the formation of the anterior eye chamber and of the teeth. RGS has been localized to human chromosome 4q25 by linkage to epidermal growth factor (EGF). We have constructed a detailed physical map and a YAC contig of the genomic region encompassing the EGF locus. Using… (More)
