Abstract

We report here the findings of a linkage analysis, involving numerous markers from the human X chromosome, in an attempt to localise a putative gene causing apparent X-linked spina bifida and anencephaly (SBA) in a large Icelandic pedigree. Two-point linkage analysis was performed using markers from 62 informative loci in this family. Although small positive lod scores were found at a number of these loci, none reached the significance level for linkage. Haplotypes were extensively analysed and found to exclude linkage to the X chromosome.
