A family is described in which Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is inherited as an X-linked dominant mutation (CMT2). Ten DNA marker loci on the X chromosome were used to map the disease locus by linkage analysis. The DXYS1 sequence at Xq13 was found to be linked to the CMT2 locus at an estimated distance of 6 cM (Zmax = 2.87 at theta max = 0.06). The data also suggested close linkage of the CMT2 locus to PGK1 (Zmax = 1.51 at theta max = 0) which has also been mapped to Xq13. Another DNA locus (DXS3), in the Xq21.3----Xq22 region, did not show close linkage (Zmax = -2.231 at theta max = 0.01). We conclude that the CMT2 locus is probably in or close to band Xq13.
