Nine probes were isolated from a human chromosome 1 enriched library and mapped to regions of chromosome 1 using somatic cell hybrid lines. One clone, LR67, which mapped 1q12→q23 detected a BglI RFLP. This probe, as well as 4 other known chromosome 1 markers, α-spectrin, Factor XIIIB, DR10 and DR78, were used for linkage studies in 15 Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT1) families. Close linking of CMT1 to any of the 5 markers was not indicated. Total lod scores excluded linkage of CMT1 to LR67 and to DR10 at 5 cM or less, to DR78 and 10 cM or less, α-spectrin at 15 cM or less and Factor XIIIB at 20 cM or less. Possible linkage, however, was shown between LR67 and CMT1 at a distance of 30 cM. Also linkage at a distance of 5 cM was detected between this probe and α-spectrin.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
