A gradient of sex linkage in the pseudoautosomal region of the human sex chromosomes.

Abstract

Three independent pseudoautosomal loci are linked to sex determination at frequencies which define a gradient of linkage. The segregation patterns of these loci indicate that X/Y recombination results from a single obligatory meiotic crossing-over in the pseudoautosomal region. Recombination in male germ cells in the terminal regions of the short arms of the X and Y chromosomes in 10-fold greater than between the same regions of the X chromosomes in female germ cells.
