Abstract

Multi‐point linkage analyses of autosomal dominant form of torsion dystonia with linkage groups on chromosomes 11p, 13q, 21q are reported. Analyses are based on family data from a single, large, non‐Jewish pedigree. Large portions of chromosomes 11p and 13q, and virtually the entire long arm of chromosome 21 are excluded from linkage with dystonia. Practical aspects of designing multipoint analyses are discussed.
