We have extended our mapping effort on human chromosome 11 to encompass a total of 262 DNA markers, which have been mapped into 24 intervals on chromosome 11; 123 of the markers reveal RFLPs. These clones are scattered throughout the chromosome, although some clustering occurs in R-positive bands (p!5.1, p11.2, q13, and q23.3). Fifty-two of the markers were found to contain DNA sequences conserved in Chinese hamster, and some of these 52 also cross-hybridized with DNA from other mammals and/or chicken. As the length of chromosome 11 is estimated at nearly 130 cM, the average distance between RFLP markers is roughly 1 cM. The large panel of DNA markers on our map should contribute to investigations of hereditary diseases on this chromosome, and it will also provide reagents for constructing either fine-scale linkage and physical maps or contig maps of cosmids or yeast artificial chromosomes.
