We have analysed the sequence organization of the DNA in the pericentric region of the long arm of the human Y chromosome. The structures of one cosmid and three yeast artificial chromosome clones were determined. The region consists of a mosaic of the known 5, 48 and 68 base-pair tandemly repeated sequences and at least five novel repeated sequence families. A long range-map of approximately 3.5 × 106 base-pairs of genomic DNA was constructed that placed the clones between about 500 × 103 and 850 × 103 base-pairs from the long arm edge of the centromeric alphoid DNA array.
