Abstract

We performed a whole genome scan in a family with maternally transmitted paraganglioma (PGL3). The family included five patients with histologically proven paraganglioma and one patient with imaging findings consistent with a paraganglioma. In addition, there were 33 clinically unaffected family members. Of these eight could be examined by magnetic resonance imaging. Our investigations indicate that PGL3 is located in 1q21-q23 for several reasons: 1) two-point linkage analysis yielded the highest LOD score of 2.25 at 1q21-q23 (marker D1S2675); 2) haplotype analysis was most consistent for 1q21-q23 markers; and 3) the locus was excluded from more than 97% of the genome using a total of 381 highly polymorphic markers.
