  • The movement, adsorption, and desorption of sulfate was studied, using samples from the a and b horizons of three soils from Costa Rica. Water, equivalent to 509 mm, was applied to small lysimeters and the distribution of radiosulfate in the columns was determined for untreated soils and samples previously incubated with one of the following substances: (NH/sub 4/)/sub 2/SO/sub 4/, K/sub 2/SO/sub 4/, simple, or triple superphosphate. Little sulfate movement was observed. This was enhanced slightly by phosphates. Sulfate adsorption from solutions containing 100 to 1,000 ppM sulfate fit Freundlich isotherms. Very concentration-dependent adsorption was indicated for alluvial soils butmore » little concentration-dependent adsorption was noted for latosols. Sulfate desorption by water depended greatly on soil type but was less variable when phosphate solutions were used as desorbants. Higher phosphate concentration increased desorption but the latosols retained appreciable sulfate amounts even against extraction by a 1,000 ppM phosphate solution. Some hydroxyl displacement on sulfate adsorption occurs as shown by higher pH values for H/sub 2/SO/sub 4/, soil suspensions in comparison with soil suspensions in KCl of equal normality.« less
  • In an effort to localize a gene for ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T), we have genotyped 27 affected Costa Rican families, with 13 markers, in the chromosome 11q22-23 region. Significant linkage disequilibrium was detected for 9/13 markers between D11S1816 and D11S1391. Recombination events observed in these pedigrees places A-T between D11S1819 and D11S1960. One ancestral haplotype is common to 24/54 affected chromosomes and roughly two-thirds of the families. Inferred (ancestral) recombination events involving this common haplotype in earlier generations suggest that A-T is distal to D11S384 and proximal to D11S1960. Several other common haplotypes were identified, consistent with multiple mutations in a singlemore » gene. When considered together with all other evidence, this study further sublocalizes the major A-T locus to {approximately}200kb, between markers S384 and S535. 32 refs., 5 figs., 1 tab.« less
  • Linkage disequilibrium (LD) was studied in 27 Costa Rican families with ataxia-telangiectasia. Previous studies indicate that the ATA and ATC gene(s) are on chromosome 11q22.3, between D11S1819 and D11S927. We studied the ordered loci D11-S1816, S1817, S1343, S1819, S384, S535, S1295, S1818, S927, S1300 and S1004 by PCR and Southern blotting. We noted moderate LD at the more distant markers S1816, S1300, and S1004. LD was higher at markers closer to A-T, and also where A-T was associated with rarer alleles. This broad region of disequilibrium did not by itself contribute to further localization of the A-T gene(s). We analyzedmore » 54 affected chromosomal haplotypes. The most common haplotype occurred 34 times, including some that had recombined outside the known A-T region. Other haplotypes occurred seven times, five times, two occurred twice, and the four remaining were unique. The most common haplotype had `broken` at S927 in five different patients, placing A-T proximal to this marker. We looked for recombination events in 15 of the families to further localize A-T. We observed one family with a recombination event placing A-T distal to S1819. A second family appears to either not link to 11q22.3 or to have a double-crossover between the markers S384 and S927; two affected sibs share haplotypes for the entire region studied, and a normal sib shared the same two haplotypes. Since all or part of this A-T haplotype occurs in 32 other, unrelated, Costa Rican patients, we anticipate a double-crossover in the 1600 kb between the informative flanking markers. All other families show segregation patterns consistent with placing A-T at 11q22.3. These results demonstrate that the major A-T gene in the Costa Rican population is located between S1819 and S927 at 11q22.3.« less
  • Linkage disequilibrium (LD) analysis provides a powerful means for screening the genome to map the location of disease genes, such as those for bipolar disorder (BP). As described in this paper, the population of the Central Valley of Costa Rica, which is descended from a small number of founders, should be suitable for LD mapping; this assertion is supported by reconstruction of extended haplotypes shared by distantly related individuals in this population suffering low-frequency hearing loss (LFHL1), which has previously been mapped by linkage analysis. A sampling strategy is described for applying LD methods to map genes for BP, andmore » clinical and demographic characteristics of an initially collected sample are discussed. This sample will provide a complement to a previously collected set of Costa Rican BP families which is under investigation using standard linkage analysis. 42 refs., 4 figs., 2 tabs.« less
  • Despite the evidence that major gene effects exist for bipolar disorder (BP), efforts to map BP loci have so far been unsuccessful. A strategy for mapping BP loci is described, focused on investigation of large pedigrees from a genetically homogenous population, that of Costa Rica. This approach is based on the use of a conservative definition of the BP phenotype in preparation for whole genome screening with polymorphic markers. Linkage simulation analyses are utilized to indicate the probability of detecting evidence suggestive of linkage, using these pedigrees. These analyses are performed under a series of single locus models, ranging formmore » recessive to nearly dominant, utilizing both lod score and affected pedigree member analyses. Additional calculations demonstrate that with any of the models employed, most of the information for linkage derives from affected rather than unaffected individuals. 26 refs., 2 figs., 5 tabs.« less
