Approximately 90% of NF1 microdeletions (Types-1, -2, and -3) are recurrent and arise via nonallelic homologous recombination between low-copyrepeats (REPs), which are paralogous regions flanking the NF1 gene.
Often involving chromosomal fragments ranging in length from one kilobase (one thousand base pairs) to one megabase (one million base pairs), a CNV reflects a segment of DNA that exhibits differences among members of the same species and which may have arisen from nonallelic homologous recombination, an error in DNA replication, or transposable elements.

It is very likely that most genes do not act alone; rather, interactions of nonallelic pairs of genes control the expression of the phenotype.
Complementation tests, including with the nitrate-tolerant super nodulation (NTSN) mutants of R32 for which a gene symbol nts has been assigned previously (Park and Buttery, 1989), revealed that all three nodulation types were under nonallelic control with distinct function.
