Thirteen moderately to highly informative microsatellite DNA polymorphisms based on (dC-dA)n · (dG-dT)n repeats were mapped to segments of human chromosome 5 using both linkage analysis and a panel of somatic cell hybrids which contained rearranged chromosomes. The markers were distributed throughout most of the length of the chromosome from the regions p15.3-p15.1 to q33.3-qter. Maps of the sites of meiotic recombination within the reference families proved particularly useful for the purpose of integrating new polymorphisms into the existing linkage map.
