Two of the human fibrillar collagen genes, proa1(III) (COL3A1) and proa2(V) (COL5A2), map to the same region of the long arm of chromosome 2. To establish the genetic distance between the two loci, we analyzed the segregation of COL3A1 and COL5A2 RFLPs in five families informative for the two loci specific markers. We found that the maximum lod score was 9.33 at a recombination frequency of theta = 0.00. The data therefore provide strong evidence for tight linkage between two evolutionarily related fibrillar collagen genes on the 2q14----2q32 segment of chromosome 2.
