    In a large pedigree of Caribbean origin with adult polycystic kidney disease, linkage has been established to the 3'HVR probe on chromosome 16. Although there are five different fathers in this pedigree, only one of whom was available for DNA analysis, the polymorphic nature of 3'HVR has enabled gene tracking to be carried out. The same allele cosegregates with the disease in every affected family member.
