Continuous linkage map of human chromosome 14 short tandem repeat polymorphisms

Genomics. 1992 Jul;13(3):532-6. doi: 10.1016/0888-7543(92)90121-8.


Nine moderately to highly informative short tandem repeat polymorphisms were assigned to chromosome 14 using somatic cell hybrids and were mapped using linkage analysis. The nine markers formed a continuous linkage map covering almost the entire long arm from 14q11.2 to q32. The markers filled a large gap within previously reported linkage maps for this chromosome. Best order of the new loci from q11.2 to q32 was D14S50, D14S54, D14S49, D14S47, D14S52, D14S53, D14S55, D14S48, and D14S51. The order shown for all adjacent pairs of loci was very strongly favored with the exception of loci pair D14S55 and D14S48, for which the order was moderately favored. Map lengths for the nine loci were 142 cM in females and 72 cM in males. Female recombination frequencies exceeded male recombination frequencies in the middle and distal portions of the map.
