Microsattelite markers covering the IL4R region were used in a sib-pair linkage analysis in atopic families characterized for specific sensitization to inhalant allergens and elevated total serum IgE. Preferential maternal but not paternal sharing of alleles in affected sibs was observed in two independent populations (Deichmann KA et al. 1998).
