In some bryophytes, microchromosomes have been found to co-occur with sex chromosomes and likely impact sex determination. It turns out that the sex determination pathway is probably more complicated and SRY may in fact inhibit some anti-male genes. The first 22 pairs are called autosomes.
These disturb the development of the gonads more than they influence the external genitalia; therefore, many of the conditions are not diagnosed until after puberty, when the child or parents becomes concerned about the lack of development of sexual characteristics.
In total, primers from 42 of the scaffolds yielded specific amplicons in all females and no amplicons from males and were considered sex-specific. Of these genes, identify orthologs in the T. The evolution of chromosomal sex determination and dosage compensation.
Unlike the majority of mammals and birds with stable sex-determining systems and heteromorphic sex chromosomes, amphibians have undergone numerous evolutionary transitions between XY and ZW-type mechanisms and may possess morphologically indistinguishable homomorphic sex chromosomes, like those of the axolotl 10 , 11 , 12 , The zygote contains two sets of 23 chromosomes, for the required
