    The three microsatellite repeat loci, DXS986, DXS995, and DXS1002, have been mapped to Xq13.2-21.1. We report here their relative order and their localisation within Xq21. These loci will be useful for the genetic mapping of disease loci in this region, in particular X linked deafness, as DXS995 lies in the region critical for this disorder.
