Mapping of Xp21 translocation breakpoints in and around the DMD gene by pulsed field gel electrophoresis.


Balanced translocations with a breakpoint in the Xp21 region are likely to disrupt the giant Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) locus and can be demonstrated in females suffering from the disease. Pulsed field gel electrophoresis allows the positioning of these breakpoints by detecting junction fragments on the derived chromosomes; DNA probes hybridizing to… (More)
