Polymorphisms in the pseudoautosomal regions of X and Y in DNA diagnosis

Academic Article


  • New findings on the pseudoautosomal area of X and Y chromosomes potentiate the importance of this part of the human genome for direct and indirect DNA diagnosis. The submitted paper is focused on the characteristic features of the given area with special emphasis on loci used in the Institute of Haematology and Blood Transfusion during DNA monitoring of patients after allogeneic transplantation of bone marrow and which thus provide important information with a major clinical impact. The authors indicate trends of future research focused on investigation of the polymorphism of the receptor of the haematopoietic factor GM CSF in relation to its function and the influence on the pathogenesis of AML.
