Peutz-Jeghers' syndrome (PJS) is a disease with autosomal dominant inheritance, which is characterised by gastrointestinal hamartomata and characteristic melanin pigmentation. Three candidate sites for a PJS locus have recently been proposed, chromosomes 1p31-p32, 6q25 and 6p11-cen. At the first of these sites, a multipoint LOD score of 4.00 had been found, strongly suggesting genetic linkage to PJS. The last two candidate sites were suggested by the chromosomal breakpoints of a patient with ...Expand abstract
