Although some of these lesions could lie in gene-coding sequences on the X chromosome not assessed in this study (approximately 35% of the total) or in autosomal genes with a male-limited phenotype that in small families mimics X-linked inheritance or they could represent gross genomic anomalies not detectable by this sequencing approach, it is unlikely that such lesions could account for the majority of the genetic defects not yet found.
