Many genes are unique to the Y chromosome, but genes in areas known as pseudoautosomal regions are present on both sex chromosomes. The Y chromosome is present in males, who have one X and one Y chromosome, while females have two X chromosomes.
Genes that are carried by either sex chromosome are said to be sex linked. X-linked disorders can be either dominant or recessive. Polygenic Risk Scores.

ATM promotes the obligate XY crossover and both crossover control and chromosome axis integrity on autosomes. These deletions remove unique portions of the AZFc; however the genes removed are almost similar Fig. Genetic microdeletions y-chromosome sex linked traits in Abbotsford for patients with azoospermia and severe oligo-asthenospermia.
However, refuting this view, evidences are also available describing deletions of USP9Y in men with normal sperm count [ 6368 ] suggesting that USP9Y is not essential for normal sperm production and fertility in males. Prevalence of partial AZFc deletions and male infertility The AZFc is of particular interest to both geneticist and a reproductive biologist as it harbours multicopy genes and provides an opportunity to study gene dosage effects in regulation of spermatogenesis.
