Intercalary heterochromatin of Drosophila as a potential model for human fragile sites



Intercalary heterochromatin of Drosophila as a potential model for human fragile sites



American Journal of Medical Genetics 30(1-2): 689-691



We summarize our proposal that "intercalary heterochromatin" of Drosophila is a useful model for human fragile sites. Comparison with Drosophila site 11A suggests that the normal allele of fragile site Xq27 is a meiotic pairing site.
