Data suggesting that probes pDP105/B and 50f2/C,E may identify sequences on distal Yq11 (interval 6) that are critical, for spermatogenesis stimulated a study of this region by means of these two probes in azoospermic 46,XY men with biopsy-proved Sertoli-cell-only syndrome. Deoxyribonucleic acid samples from controls and study subjects were digested with the restriction enzymes Taql, EcoRl, and BamHl. These samples were blotted and hybridized with pDP105/B, 50f2/C,E, and two more proximal Yq11 probes 4B-2 and pAS1. The sequence hydridizing to 50f2/C was absent in one study subject. No deletions were detected with pDP105/B and the two more proximal probes.
