Abstract

X-linked agammaglobulinaemia (XLA) was previously mapped using genetic linkage analysis to Xq22. No recombinants have been found so far between the XLA locus and DXS178 in over 30 informative meioses. Two overlapping yeast artificial chromosomes (YACs), which cover a region of approximately 1000 kb around DXS178 and form part of a larger YAC contig, were hybridised to an ordered cosmid library constructed from a human fibroblast cell line with karyotype 49,XXXXX. Positive cosmids were gridded in high density arrays onto nylon filters and rescreened with a series of YACs, YAC end probes and additional markers from the region to assign cosmids into intervals. A 640 kb-YAC hybridising to p212 (DXS178) was used for direct selection of PCR-amplified cDNA from two cDNA libraries. To identify the cosmids containing transcribed sequences the enriched cDNA from each library was radiolabelled and hybridised back to positive clones which mapped to the region of interest. These clones were then hybridised to the subcloned enriched cDNA sublibraries. Candidate cDNA clones were isolated, grouped within the region of interest and their position was confirmed by mapping back to the cosmids.
