It has been proposed that sequence homology should exist between the short arms of the human sex chromosomes, in the regions pairing at meiosis. Out of 40 clones picked at random from a collection of non-repetitive DNA sequences derived from the human Y chromosome, we have found nine sequences which show very high homology with sequences located on the X chromosome. All nine probes originate from the euchromatic part of the Y chromosome. All the homologous sequences are located within the Xq12… CONTINUE READING
