Recently some of us cloned a new probe RN1 (DXS369), which appears a close marker for the fragile X locus (FRAXA) [Oostra et al.: Genomics 1990]. We present here new evidence for its physical and genetic mapping in the DXS98--FRAXA interval. We used 2 different somatic cell hybrid lines with breakpoints in the Xq27-q28 region: L10B Rea and PeCHN, and we established the order: (DXS105, DXS98)-L10B Rea-DXS369-PeCHN- (DXS304, DXS52). We detected an additional TaqI RFLP at the DXS369 locus which increases its informativeness up to 57%. Two point linkage analysis in a large set of families gave high lod scores for the FRAXA-DXS369 linkage (z(theta) = 10.1 at theta = 0.044) and for DXS369-DXS304, a marker distal to FRAXA (z = 19.2 at theta = 0.070). By multipoint analyses we established the localization of DXS369 in the DXS98-FRAXA interval. DXS369 is a much closer proximal marker for FRAXA than DXS105 or DXS98 and any new probe mapping between the breakpoints in L10B Rea and PeCHN will be of potential interest as a marker for FRAXA.
