- Entrez Gene: 108410392
This genomic element is found within the pseudoautosomal region 1 (PAR1) of chromosomes X and Y, where each chromosome contains the same DNA region. It is located approximately 215 kb downstream of the SHOX (short stature homeobox) gene, and is one of several conserved elements that surround that gene. It can function as an enhancer of SHOX gene expression. Chromosome conformation capture (3C) assays show that the orthologous chicken region can form looping interactions with a region upstream of the SHOX gene in chicken limb. Mutations that include this human element, including deletions and microduplications, are associated with Leri-Weill dyschondrosteosis (LWD) and idiopathic short stature (ISS), and they have also been implicated in autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) and related neurodevelopmental conditions.
