A new gene family (FAM9) of low-copy repeats in Xp22.3 expressed exclusively in testis: implications for recombinations in this region.
Illegitimate recombinations between low-copy repetitive elements (LCR) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of various chromosomal rearrangements. Two such duplicons have been reported previously on Xp22.3, the CRI-S232 elements, involved in the generation of deletions in the steroidsulfatase gene and five members of the G1.3 (DXF22S) repetitive sequence family. By molecular characterization of an Xp22/10q24 translocation, we identified one duplicon of the G1.3 family in the breakpoint re...Expand abstract
