Abstract

Microsatellite DNA consists of tandemly repeated simple DNA sequence motifs, the number of these repeats being polymorphic. These recently described polymorphisms are ubiquitously distributed throughout the human genome and are highly informative, making them ideal markers for linkage analysis. Physical localization of these microsatellites is an important prerequisite for aligning physical and genetic maps. We have physically mapped the microsatellite at D13S71, which has previously been assigned to chromosome 13. Band-specific mapping of D13S71 to the distal part of band 13q32, near 13q33, was achieved by microdissection of GTG-banded chromosomes and subsequent enzymatic amplification with a heminested PCR approach. Analysis of a panel of somatic cell hybrids confirmed this localization. The technique presented may also be useful in a variety of complex mapping situations and whenever the precise localization of very small (as small as 70 bp) DNA probes is necessary.
