The authors investigated genetic factors contributing to restless legs syndrome (RLS) by performing a 10-cM genome-wide scan in a large French-Canadian pedigree. They detected an autosomal-dominant locus mapping to chromosome 20p13, with a maximum multipoint lod score of 3.86 at marker D20S849. This is the third reported autosomal-dominant locus for RLS and the first autosomal-dominant RLS locus in the French-Canadian population.
