Results of Duffy (Fy) linkage confirm genetic heterogeneity in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1 (CMT1). Of 11 families informative for Fy, four showed probable linkage with CMT1, seven showed probable non-linkage and two showed definite non-linkage. These results suggest that Fy linked CMT1 may be less common than previously thought. These results combined with those of another DNA probe for the antithrombin III gene confirm that there are at least two gene loci for CMT1, termed 1A and 1B.

Search Google Scholar™

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.
