Isolation and high-resolution mapping of new DNA markers from the pericentromeric region of chromosome 10.

The gene responsible for multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2A (MEN 2A) has been localized to the pericentromeric region of chromosome 10. Several markers that fail to recombine with MEN2A have been identified, including D10Z1, D10S94, D10S97, and D10S102. Meiotic mapping in the MEN2A region is limited by the paucity of critical crossovers identified and by the dramatically reduced rates of recombination in males. Additional approaches to mapping loci in the pericentromeric region of chromosome 10 are required. We have undertaken the generation of a detailed physical map by radiation hybrid mapping. Here we report the development of a radiation hybrid panel and its use in the mapping of new DNA markers in pericentromeric chromosome 10. The radiation-reduced hybrids used for mapping studies all retain small subchromosomal fragments that include both D10S94 and D10Z1. One hybrid was selected as the source of DNA for cloning. One hundred five human recombinant clones were isolated from a lambda library made with pp11A DNA. We have completed regional mapping of 22 of those clones using our radiation hybrid mapping panel. Seven markers have been identified and, when taken together with previously meiotically mapped markers, define eight radiation hybrid map intervals between D10S34 and RBP3. The identical order is found for a number of these using either the radiation hybrid mapping panel or the meiotic mapping panel. We believe that this combination cloning and mapping approach will facilitate the precise positioning of new markers in pericentromeric chromosome 10 and will help in refining further the localization of MEN2A.[1]
