BACKGROUND Balanced X;autosome translocations interrupting the 'critical region' of the long arm of the human X chromosome are often associated with premature ovarian failure (POF). However, the mechanisms leading to X-linked ovarian dysfunction are largely unknown, as the majority of the X chromosome breakpoints have been mapped to gene-free genomic(More)
BACKGROUND X chromosome rearrangements defined a critical region for premature ovarian failure (POF) that extended for >15 Mb in Xq. It has been shown previously that the region could be divided into two functionally distinct portions and suggested that balanced translocations interrupting its proximal part, critical region 1 (CR1), could be responsible for(More)
