The role of HLA in susceptibility to affective disorders was assessed by sib pair linkage analysis and by association studies. Unipolar Disorder (UD) and Bipolar Disorder (BD) were studied separately. Both the sib pair data and the antigen frequency distribution suggested an HLA‐linked...
Two summary measures for evaluating the evidence for linkage are the maximum lod score and the average of the likelihood function (antilod score). The average antilod score can be used to calculate an exact probability of there being no linkage. Use of subjective prior probabilities in the...
Almost all human leukocyte antigen (HLA) haplotypes positive for HLA‐DR4 also carry the DQw3 specificity, which appears in one of two allelic forms, DQw3.1 or DQw3.2. Previous studies have shown that the frequency of the HLA DR4‐DQw3.2 allele is approximately 95% among DR4‐positvie...
A DQβ locus‐specific oligonucleotide probe is used to identify DQβ alleles present in six insulin‐dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) multiplex families. Results of genotyping using this technique agree with those from cDNA probes and are often clearer. Allele‐specific oligonucleotide...
The persistence of cytoplasmic islet cell antibodies (ICA) more than a year after diagnosis of insulin‐dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) was investigated in 43 families with at least two children with IDDM. The prevalence of persistent ICA among IDDM patients was 16%. Persistence of ICA...
Use of affected sib‐pairs for linkage determination of a sex‐linked dominant disease with a recessive X‐chromosome marker will require extremely large sample sizes, particularly when the marker is marginally polymorphic. In addition, this method should not be used without caution on data...
The primary aim of the insulin‐dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) component of Genetic Analysis Workshop 5 (GAW5) was to collect and analyze new data on DNA polymorphisms closely linked to the HLA‐D region and the insulin gene. The probes and restriction enzymes described here were used by...
Recent data on chromosomal linkage markers in affective disorders indicate that single locus inheritance is involved in these disorders. The presence of a single locus has not been detectable using segregation analysis on family study data from large populations, possibly because of both...
