Genotyping of seven polymorphic markers located on chromosome X was completed (DXS101, DXS1191, DXS1120, DXS1105, DXS456, DXS1059, and DXS1072). A parsimony approach was utilized for phasing haplotypes. The COL4A5 locus was excluded by linkage analysis. COL4A5 is located between markers DXS1105 and DXS456.

Exon 1 of COL4A3 was amplified by PCR using the primers 5′-GACCGAGCCCTACAAAACC-3′ and 5′-GTGGAGGAGGGATGGAAGTG-3′ and run on 2.0% agarose gel. The expected product size is 282 base pairs for a wild-type product and 258 base pairs for the COL4A3 c.40_63del. An individual homozygous for the wild-type allele is shown in lane A, an individual heterozygous for the COL4A3 c.40_63del is shown in lane B, and an individual homozygous for the COL4A3 c.40_63del is shown in lane C. Samples with a presumed mutation were confirmed by Sanger sequencing.

One thousand samples were plated in three 384 well plates with genomic DNA ranging between 1 ng and 20 ng per sample. The plates were dried and then the TaqMan Genotyping Master Mix (LTI) and the assay were added, bringing the final volume to 5 μL. The plates were then run on the GeneAmp® PCR System 9700 (LTI) at the following setting: holds at 50°C for 2 min and 95°C for 10 min, and then 40 cycles at 95°C for 15 s and 60°C for 1 min. Allelic discrimination was then performed on the ABI PRISM 7900 HT Sequence Detection System using sds 2.3 software (LTI) and the data was analyzed using TaqMan Genotyper v1.1 software (LTI). Five carriers were identified.
