Can a Translocation of chromosomal parts occur between an autosome and an allosome? If it occurs in between allosomes,what could be the effect of Robertsonian Translocation between an X and a Y chromosome considering the fact that the small product of a Robertsonian Translocation is mostly lost!??!

In short, yes. A quick scan of a few abstracts gives both clinical and model organism examples.

It seems Robertsonian translocations are not ubiquitous amongst the chromosomes and only involve 13, 14, 15, 21 and 22.

HTH.
