ABSTRACT: Autosomal dominant familial spastic paraplegia (ADFSP) is a genetically heterogeneous neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a spasticity of the lower limbs. A locus causing AD-FSP (FSP1) has been previously mapped to chromosome 14q. We now report linkage of a second AD-FSP locus (FSP2) to chromosome 2p21 – p24 In five of seven French families and one large Dutch pedigree. The analysis of recombination events and multipoint linkage place FSP2 within a 4 cM interval flanked by loci D2S400 and D2S367.
