A physical map around the WAGR complex on the short arm of chromosome 11.

A long-range restriction map of part of the short arm of chromosome 11 including the WAGR region has been constructed using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and a number of infrequently cutting restriction enzymes. A total of 15.4 Mbp has been mapped in detail, extending from proximal 11p14 to the distal part of 11p12. The map localizes 35 different DNA probes and reveals at least nine areas with features characteristic of HTF islands, some of which may be candidates for the different loci underlying the phenotype of the WAGR syndrome. This map will furthermore allow screening of DNA from individuals with WAGR-related phenotypes and from Wilms tumors for associated chromosomal rearrangements.
