Familial multiple endocrine neoplasia, type 1 (FMEN1), is an autosomal dominant trait generated by hyperfunction of various endocrine glands. The gene for MEN1 has been mapped to chromosome 11q13 by genetic linkage and deletion mapping in tumors. Eight Finnish families, including 46 individuals carrying the risk haplotype, have been typed for four polymorphic microsatellite DNA markers spanning the MEN1 chromosomal region. Three of the loci concerned, D11S913, D11S987, and D11S1337, displayed maximum lod scores (Zmax) 6.70, 9.88, and 2.54, respectively, with no recombinations with the disease gene, whereas a Zmax of 8.43 was obtained for D11S971 at a recombination fraction of 0.03. Our results indicate that the use of this set of markers considerably improves the diagnostic value of genotyping patients at risk of developing MEN1.
