The linkage analysis between the locus for coagulation factor XIII-A (F13A) and HLA region genes (HLA-A,-C,-B) was performed. In males, the maximum of lod scores between F13A and HLA was 0.33 at θ=0.30, and in females lod scores were negative at all values of θ. The results provided no evidence for close linkage between F13A and HLA genes.
