PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In this study, nineteen cases of suspected or clinically diagnosed Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) were tested for molecular deletions by in situ hybridization with two DNA probes, IR4-3R and GABRB3. Both probes are specific for sequences within the chromosome region 15q11-13, with IR4-3R located within the putative PWS region and GABRB3 in the distal area associated with Angelman Syndrome.
