Human chromosome 2 contains large blocks of segmental duplications (SDs), both within and between proximal 2p and proximal 2q, and these may contribute to the frequency of the common variant inversion inv(2)(p11.2q13). Despite their being cytogenetically homogeneous, we have identified four different breakpoint combinations by fluorescence in situ(More)
Previous studies have suggested that atopy is linked to the beta chain of the high affinity IgE receptor (Fcepsilon R1-beta) on chromosome 11q13. Fcepsilon R1-beta polymorphisms, I181L, V183L, and E237G, are reported to be associated with asthma and atopy. The aim of this study was to investigate linkage to Fcepsilon R1-beta in a UK population and to assess(More)
