True, but if say you widen the scope to the region between
ChrY:5334701..5335371 (671 basepairs), which is more in line with the
segment lengths we're using, the hit on the X produces a 665/671 match
between the Ref. X and the Ref. Y sequences, which is enough to filter
out recent X-Y transpositions if the primers are designed to consider
The WTY trace which had the L459+ mutation was very unambiguous on both
forward and reverse segments, the reverse less so than the forward by a
small degree, but not enough to warrent concern. If any of the primers
bonded to both X and Y chromosomes, we should have expected an ambiguous
heterozygous call at that position in either direction. There was none.
