A genetic marker for WMS is the deletion of one copy of a small set of genes on chromosome 7, band 7qll23, shown in the ideogram. This region is expanded to the right to illustrate genes that are missing one copy in WMS, including the gene for elastin. The regions involving the common breakpoints in WMS are also illustrated (see Korenberg et al., this volume). Thus, WMS is characterized genetically by deletion of one copy of a small set of genes on chromosome 7, including the gene for elastin (illustration based on Korenberg et al., 1998).
