BACKGROUND Recurrent AZFb deletions on the human Y chromosome are associated with an absence of ejaculated spermatozoa consequent to a meiotic maturation arrest that prevents the progression of germ cells to haploid stages. The extreme rarity of partial deletions has hampered the identification of the AZFb genes required for normal meiotic stages. The critical interval, refined by two overlapping deletions associated with full spermatogenesis (AZFc and b1/b3), measures over 4 Mb and contains 13… CONTINUE READING
