Polymorphic DNA markers located in bands 16q13, 16q21 and 16q22 were examined for recombination with FRA16B, the fragile site at 16q22.100. A tight linkage cluster D16S10-FRA16B-D16S4-HP was established. There were no recombinants {Mathematical expression} between D16S10 and D16S4, which flank FRA16B. The markers D16S10 and D16S4 are in close proximity on the genetic map and delineate a small chromosomal segment, which contains the distamycin A-inducible fragile site.
