    Linkage of the anonymous marker D3S2 at 3p21 has been shown in three British families with dominant dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa with a combined lod score of 6.75 at theta = 0. This locus is close to the collagen type VII locus implying that abnormalities of this gene cause dominant dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa.
