Abstract

Familial multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominant disorder with affected individuals developing parathyroid, gastrointestinal (GI) endocrine, and anterior pituitary tumors. Four large kindreds from the Burin peninsula/Fortune Bay area of Newfoundland with prominent features of prolactinomas, carcinoids, and parathyroid tumors (referred to as MEN1(Burin)) have been described, and they show linkage to 11q13, the same locus as that of MEN1. Haplotype analysis with 16 polymorphic markers now reveals that representative affected individuals from all four families share a common haplotype over a 2.5 Mb region. A nonsense mutation in the MEN1 gene has been found to be responsible for the disease in the affected members in all four of the MEN1(Burin) families, providing convincing evidence of a common founder.
