A linkage and association analysis was made on 14 Italian families with recurrent migraine. We analyzed five chromosomal regions surrounding the candidate genes 5HT1D (lp36.3-34.3), 5HT1B (6q13), 5HT2A (13q14-21), 5HT transporter (17q11.2-12), CACNLB1 (17q11.2-22) and FHM (19p13), using 29 DNA polymorphic markers. All two-point lod scores were negative, and the χ2 sib-pair analyses were not significant, thus indicating the probable exclusion of these regions as sites of migraine genes in our population.
