The sex related height difference in humans is thought to be caused mainly by two components: first, a hormonal component determined by the sex dimorphism of bioactive gonadal steroids, and, second, a genetic component attributed to a Y specific growth gene, GCY. Despite extensive mapping attempts for this gene on the human Y chromosome, its precise position remains unknown. We have recently provided evidence that inappropriate cytogenetic methodology in the characterisation of Y chromosomal… CONTINUE READING
