The DNA immediately flanking the human Xp:Yp telomere exhibits a high level of sequence polymorphism and strong linkage disequilibrium, resulting in a limited number o f highly diverged haplotypes. The sequence divergence suggests that these haplotypes are ancient. Orthologous sequences in chimpanzees and gorillas are more diverged than between synonymous sequences at other loci. Balancing selection may have contributed to the maintenance of the highly diverged haplotypes flanking the human Xp… CONTINUE READING
