Abstract

Objective. To investigate the linkage between asthma and 5q31-33 in a Chinese population. Methods. The linkage between microsatellite markers in 5q and asthma and allergy was tested by lod score analysis. Results. The linkage between asthma and 5q31-33 was not confirmed. Conclusion. The genes at 5q31- 33 are not likely to contribute to inheritance of asthma in this Chinese population.
