Does the human X contain a third evolutionary block: Origin of genes on human Xp11 and Xq28

Delbridge, Margaret; Patel, Hardip; Waters, Paul; McMillan, Daniel; Graves, Jennifer


Comparative gene mapping of human X-borne genes in marsupials defined an ancient conserved region and a recently added region of the eutherian X, and the separate evolutionary origins of these regions was confirmed by their locations on chicken chromosomes 4p and 1q, respectively. However, two groups of genes, from the pericentric region of the short arm of the human X (at Xp11) and a large group of genes from human Xq28, were thought to be part of a third evolutionary block, being located in a...[Show more]
