(genetics)
Pertaining to segments of the X and Y chromosomes that undergo obligatory crossing-over so that they show on autosomal pattern of inheritance instead of the typical x- or y-linked pattern.

In 1998, Belin et al (1) discovered that Leri-Weill dyschondrosteosis was due to a haploinsufficiency of the short-stature homeobox-containing (SHOX) gene, which is located on the pseudoautosomal region of the short arm of both sex chromosomes.
The Y chromosome, except for possible pseudoautosomal regions, constitutes a male-specific haploid entity, and studies of Y-linked polymorphisms can thus be used as a complement to mtDNA surveys.
