Two CA/GT repeat polymorphisms in intron 27 of the human neurofibromatosis (NF1) gene

Hum Genet. 1994 Mar;93(3):351-2. doi: 10.1007/BF00212039.


We describe two polymorphic microsatellites in intron 27 of the neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) gene. The microsatellites consist of TG/AC and AC/TG dinucleotide repeats detecting five and seven alleles and with heterozygosities of 0.46 and 0.72, respectively. These microsatellites are useful tools both for direct and indirect genetic analysis of NF1.
