Abstract

Five Italian families with recurrence of cases of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (type Ia) were analysed using three closely linked DNA probes that detect polymorphisms in the region 17p11.2. The probe pVAW409R3 detected the presence of a duplication in all the affected subjects, but not in the subjects with normal electromyographic (EMG) findings. This observation confirms previous data indicating the association of the duplication with the disease, suggesting that, at least in populations of European origin, the duplication might be the molecular feature diagnostic of the pathological trait.
