Leal, G.F., Roberts, E., Silva, E.O., Costa, S.M.R., Hampshire, D.J. and Woods, C.G. (2003) A novel locus for autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH6) maps to 13q12.2. Journal of Medical Genetics, 40 (7). pp. 540-542. ISSN 0022-2593
• Autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH) is a genetic disorder in which an affected subject is born with a head circumference >3 SD below the expected mean and is mentally retarded.
• We report a novel locus (MCPH6) mapped to chromosome 13q12.2 in a Brazilian family.
• The minimal critical region spans 6 Mb between markers AL139378GT17 and D13S1244 with a maximum two point lod score of 6.25.
