Abstract

We report here a simple method for generating large CAG/CTG repeat sequences. We have applied this method to clone the genomic sequence containing the CAG/CTG repeat and its upstream intronic sequence present in spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 or Machado-Joseph disease (SCA3/MJD) by a modified DIRECT method. With these modifications we have considerably simplified the generation of the repeat probe used to screen for anomalous bands. This method will facilitate the molecular approach to other genetic disorders where expansions of repeat sequences could be involved.
