Pericentric inversions of the human Y chromosome (inv(Y)) are the result of breakpoints in Yp and Yq. Whether these breakpoints occur recurrently on specific hotspots or appear at different locations along the repeat structure of the human Y chromosome is an open question. Employing FISH for a better definition and refinement of the inversion breakpoints in 9 cases of inv(Y) chromosomes, with seemingly unvarying metacentric appearance after banding analysis, unequivocally resulted in… CONTINUE READING
