The linkage relationship between the factor VIII gene (F8C) and the DXS52 locus was examined in 8 families. Two recombinations were identified in 35 informative meioses (Zmax = 5.67; theta = 0.05), one in a family with hemophilia A, the other in a family with the fra(X) syndrome. Based on the latter recombination, the most probable order of loci was determined to be centromere-fra(X)-DXS15-DXS52-F8C-telomere. When these data are added to those reported previously the most probable genetic distance between F8C and DXS52 is 3 cM (Z = 14.62). Identification of these and other recombinations suggests that the use of DXS52 as a genetic marker for carrier detection and prenatal diagnosis of hemophilia A has an error rate between 3-5%.
