Abstract
Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) is a clinically and genetically heterogenous group of disorders, with both recessive and dominant forms reported. Recently, a series of recessive LGMD families were linked to chromosome 15q. We report herein the results of our linkage studies in a previously reported large autosomal dominant family. The LGMD gene in this family was localized to chromosome 5q22.3-31.3 by using a series of CA(n) microsatellite repeat markers. Linkage to 15q was excluded. These findings confirm genetic heterogeneity in this clinically diverse syndrome.
