Linkage analysis of a candidate region in Scandinavian sib pairs with multiple sclerosis reveals linkage to chromosome 17q.
To date, four genome screens have been completed in the demyelinating autoimmune disease multiple sclerosis (MS). Although these screens failed to identify any loci with major effects on susceptibility, several novel regions of potential linkage were suggested, including the long arm of chromosome 17. In order to further pursue this promising region we have investigated six highly polymorphic microsatellite markers in 115 Scandinavian families with MS affected sib pairs. Multipoint linkage an...Expand abstract
