An important locus for Atopy (familial asthma, hay fever and eczema) has been localized to the 11q12-q13 region with the minimum recombination fraction around the CD20 gene. We have constructed a 2.8 megabase (Mb) Yeast Artificial Chromosome (YAC) contig of the candidate region using 15 STSs. A total of seven genes have been mapped within this interval in the order cen-OSBP-TCN1-GIF-Fc epsilon RI beta-CD20-CD5-PGA-q(ter) and can be covered by a minimum of eight YAC clones.
