Bridging markers defining the map position of X linked hypophosphataemic rickets.
Hypophosphataemic rickets is commonly an X linked dominant hereditary disorder associated with a renal tubular defect in phosphate transport and bone deformities. The gene causing this disorder has been mapped to Xp22.31----p21.3 by using cloned human X chromosome sequences identifying restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) in linkage studies of affected families. The hypophosphataemic rickets gene locus (HPDR) was previously mapped distal to the X linked polymorphic locus DXS41 (9...Expand abstract
