Autosomal dominant medullary cystic kidney disease (MCKD) is an adult onset tubulointerstitial nephropathy that leads to salt wasting and end-stage renal failure. A gene locus (MCKD1) has been mapped on chromosome 1q21. Here we report on a large MCKD1 family of British origin linked to the MCKD1 locus. Haplotype analysis performed with markers spanning the previously reported critical MCKD1 region allowed for the refinement of this interval to 4 cM by definition of D1S305 as a new proximal flanking marker. Furthermore, we constructed a yeast artificial chromosome, P1-related artificial chromosome, and bacterial artificial chromosome contig of this region, which is only sparsely covered by the Human Genome Sequencing Project. This enabled us to map numerous expressed sequence tags within the critical interval. This physical and partial transcriptional map of the MCKD1 region is a powerful tool for the identification of positional and functional candidate genes for MCKD1 and will help to identify the disease-causing gene. © 2001 Academic Press.
