YACs from the complex repetitive human genomic region 5q13, spanning the spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) locus, have been searched for transcribed sequences using the method of End Ligation Coincident Sequence Cloning. Six transcripts (PT1-6) have been identified, three of which (PT4, PT5 and PT6) are novel. Five of these elements hybridise to multiple loci in 5q13, but PT5 is single copy and maps very close to markers that show linkage disequilibrium with SMA.
