Refined genetic mapping of a gene for familial juvenile nephronophthisis (NPH1) and physical mapping of linked markers



Refined genetic mapping of a gene for familial juvenile nephronophthisis (NPH1) and physical mapping of linked markers



Genomics 25(2): 360-364



We have recently assigned a gene for familial juvenile nephronophthisis (NPH1) to chromosome 2q between microsatellite markers at loci D2S135 and D2S110. Here we have extended and refined our previous linkage analysis by studying five additional NPH families and by testing five additional markers. By haplotype analysis in a large family yielding proof of linkage, D2S135 and D2S283 were defined with certainty as flanking the NPH1 critical region within a 14-cM interval. These data now allow cytogenetic assignment of the NPH1 critical region to 2q11.1-q21.1. Furthermore, haplotype analysis in 12 small families helped to define as flanking markers D2S293 and D2S363, which span an 8-cM interval. Multipoint linkage analysis by the location score method resulted in a maximum multipoint lod score of 10.30. The Z-max - 1 support interval spans 6.9 cM and is flanked by marker loci D2S293 and D2S363. Since IL1A maps to this region and has been cytogenetically mapped to 2q13 in the literature, NPH1 can be assigned more closely to 2q13 or adjacent bands. Contigs of CEPH mega-YAC clones in the region were established by screening the clones with microsatellite markers, adding marker IL1A to the physical map as a novel assignment. We conclude that the NPH1 gene most probably localizes to an interval of 6.9 cM between marker loci D2S293 and D2S363 in the vicinity of 2q13. This contig mapping provides the basis for cloning of this interval and for isolation of the NPH1 gene.
