The microtubule-associated protein 1B (MAP1B) locus has been mapped in close proximity to spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) on chromosome 5q13. We have identified a second microsatellite within a MAP1B intron, which increases the heterozygosity of this locus to 94%. Two unambiguous recombination events establish MAP1B as a closely linked, distal flanking marker for the disease locus, while a third recombinant establishes D5S6 as the proximal flanking marker. The combination of key recombinants an...Expand abstract
