Integrating maps of chromosome 16.

The recently published, detailed cytogenetic-based physical map of chromosome 16 has the highest resolution of any autosomal cytogenetic map thus far constructed. The genetic map has been integrated with the cytogenetic map to facilitate the regional localization of disease genes by linkage. Disease genes for tuberous sclerosis, familial Mediterranean fever, Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome and Morquio A syndrome have now been assigned to chromosome 16. The search for the adult polycystic kidney disease gene has recently been narrowed to the analysis of candidate loci on chromosome 16, and localization of the gene determining juvenile Batten disease has been further refined by disequilibrium mapping.[1]
