Individual translocation chromosomes from six girls suffering from Duchenne or Becker muscular dystrophy (DMD or BMD) have been isolated in human-mouse somatic cell hybrids. DNA prepared from these hybrids was probed with sequences physically close to the locus; these include a junction fragment from the site of the X:21 translocation (pXJ1) and subclones from the pERT 87 (DXS164) region which are absent in a minority of male DMD patients. Both sets of sequences mapped within the area defined by the translocation breakpoints, confirming their close proximity to the DMD and BMD loci. Furthermore, the X chromosome breakpoints of the translocations can be divided into three categories depending upon their position in relation to the sequences recognised by pXJ1 and pERT 87. The genomic target disrupted by the translocations examined here is a minimum of 176 kb.
