Multicolor fluorescence in situ hybridization on metaphase chromosomes and interphase Halo-preparations using cosmid and YAC clones for the simultaneous high resolution mapping of deletions in the dystrophin gene

We report on multicolor fluorescence in situ hybridization protocols for the simultaneous visualization of deletion-prone regions for carrier detection of Duchenne/ Becker (DMD/BMD) muscular dystrophy. Cosmid and yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) clones specific for preferentially deleted subregions of the dystrophin gene were labeled differentially and… CONTINUE READING
