Variants for TSPY8 Gene

Polymorphic Variants from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TSPY8 Gene

Maps to a tandemly repeated region on chromosome Yp11; additionally at least one copy is reported originating from Yq. The gene is thought to be present with an inter-individual variation in copy number and between 20 and 60 copies per Y chromosome are expected. 35 tandemly repeated gene copies on Yp11 originating from one individual have been reported (PubMed:12815422).
