This region is known to undergo non-allelic homologous recombination (NAHR) with another recombination region, the SUZ12 PRS4 recombination region, which is located a little over 1.2 Mb centromere-distal of this region. NAHR between the SUZ12P1 PRS4 and the SUZ12 PRS4 recombination regions can result in deletions of the intervening sequences, including the neurofibromin 1 (NF1) gene, and is known as a type-2 NF1 deletion, causing neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), an autosomal dominant disorder. Unlike other NF1 deletions, type-2 deletions are thought to predominantly occur from mitotic intrachromosomal recombination, since somatic mosaicism is observed in most individuals. This region contains multiple sub-regions, corresponding to different crossover regions. This recombination region is found within a region that shares about 50 kb of high sequence identity with the SUZ12 polycomb repressive complex 2 subunit (SUZ12) gene. Crossovers both proximal and distal to this region have also been identified in some individuals with type-2 NF1 deletions. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2016]
