Excess IBD sharing
“the entire segment of chromosome 6, between 25 and 35 Mb, is shared among individuals unrecombined at least 4-fold more than any other region in the genome”
Albrechtson et al (2011) found a region on chromosome 8 centred on position 9.9 Mb which exhibited an excess of IBD sharing. High IBD sharing signals were also seen on each side of the centromere on chromosome 11. These regions contain clusters of olfactory receptors. Evidence for increased IBD was also seen on chromosomes 2, 3, and 5.[16
Gusev et al (2011) found recurrently shared regions in chromosomes 2, 4, and 8 in unrelated individuals of different geographical origins, and even across different continents of origin. The region on chromosome 8 which was enriched for IBD sharing was in the location between 11.1 and 13.3 Mbs and in a different position to that reported by Albrechtson.
