Abstract

A new syndromic form of X-linked mental retardation associated to obesity, MRXS7, has been localised to Xp11.3-Xq23 in a large Pakistani family. The ten affected males show clinical manifestations of mental retardation, obesity and hypogonadism. The family was genotyped by a set of microsatellite markers spaced at approximately 10 cM intervals on the X chromosome. Linkage to five adjacent microsatellite markers, mapping in the pericentromeric area, was established and a maximum two-point lod score of 3.86 was reached at zero recombination with marker DXS1106. Reduced recombination events around the centromere prevented precise mapping of the gene.
