Abstract We have analyzed the segregation of restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) associated with 9 anonymous probes detecting loci DXS10, DXS15, DXS19, DXS37, DXS51, DXS52, DXS98, DXS99, and DXS100 and probes for HPRT and F9 in a set of 40 families segregating fragile X (fra(X]. Using two-point and multipoint analysis, we have established their relative genetic locations. The results indicate that DXS99 and DXS10, unlike previous reports, are not tightly linked to F9. A new locus was found to map within the F9 - fra(X) region. DXS98 showed 6% recombination with fra(X) and appeared to be the closest locus to fra(X). These results will be useful for mapping the relative position of newly defined X probes in this region and for future genetic studies of families with fra(X), hemophilia B, or Lesch-Nyhan mutations.
