|Title:||Is Yq11 the main critical segment in balance Y;Autosome translocations?|
|Abstract:||Balanced Y;Autosome translocations seem to be associated with male infertility whenever the Y breakpoint is located into Yq11 (where the azoospermia factor maps) or near its boundaries. By analogy with the effect on female carriers' fertility of balanced X;Autosome translocations, the band Yq11 emerges as the critical segment. This hypothesis implies that the subjacent mechanism is an impaired expression of the azoospermia factor - either through its physical disruption or via a position effect - rather than a disorder of the sex bivalent inactivation during prophase I.|
