In autosomes the centromere position is identical. Chen X. Further evidence of the role of escape genes in sexual dimorphism has emerged from studies of human cancers. For the genes with somatic, sex-biased expression, moderated- t -tests were performed [ 16 ], comparing gene expression in tud progeny males and females to determine at which stage the gene displays somatic, sex-differential expression Table 2.
Although widely expressed, KDM5C has been clinically implicated in impaired neuronal function and XLID, suggesting a key role in brain development 82838485868788 Yellow and blue indicates high and low levels of expression compared to a common reference, respectively.
Additional file 9: Genes that are expressed in the difference between sex chromosomes and sex determination by positions in Portsmouth germline during metamorphosis.
The details of some sex-determination systems are not yet fully understood. An Introduction to Genetic Analysis. Y chromosomes carry the necessary genes for the development of male gonads, or testes. BBC News.
Regina Bailey is a board-certified registered nurse, science writer and educator. In Y-centered sex determination, the SRY gene is the main gene in determining male characteristics, but multiple genes are required to develop testes. Some species, however, have no sex-determination system.
Griffiths, A. Many other sex-determination systems exist. This is because they are responsible for the transmission of the hereditary information from one generation to the next. This development of an unfertilized egg into a male and a fertilized egg into a female is a type of parthenogenesis known as arrhenotokous parthenogenesis.
Other unusual systems include those of the swordtail fish [ clarification needed ] ;  the Chironomus midges [ clarification needed ] [ citation needed ] ; the juvenile hermaphroditism of zebrafishwith an unknown trigger;  and the platyfishwhich has W, X, and Y chromosomes.

To determine the experimental reproducibility for the time course study, correlation values between replicates of each experiment were determined using Pearson's correlation on the logarithm of the ratio values for every oligonucleotide on the microarray.
