LCN1 gene encodes the tear lipocalin; the lipocalins are a large
growing family of proteins
characterized by their ability to bind small hydrophobic molecules. We

a dinucleotide repeat microsatellite marker (D9S1826) close to LCN1 gene.
the CEPH reference families, the position of LCN1 is located within the
genetic map between D9S23 and D9S158.
