Abstract

BRCA1, a breast and ovarian cancer susceptibility locus, has been isolated and maps to 17q21. A physical map of the BRCA1, region which extended from the proximal boundary at D17S776 to the distal boundary at D17S78 was constructed and consists of 51 sequence tagged sites (STSs) from P1 and YAC ends, nine new short-tandem repeat (STR) polymorphic markers, and eight identified genes. The contig, which spans the estimated 2.3 Mb region, contains 29 P1s, 11 YACs, two BACs, and one cosmid. Based on key recombinants in two linked families, BRCA1 was further localized to a region bounded by D17S1321 on the proximal side and D17S1325 on the distal side. Within this estimated 600 kb region, the contig was composed completely of P1s and BACs ordered by STS-content mapping and confirmed by DNA restriction fragment fingerprinting.
