We compared the partial gene content of the Z-specific part of sex chromosomes across major lineages of lacertids and discovered a strong evolutionary stability of sex chromosomes. In the phylogeny, the X and Y alleles cluster according to species, not in groups of gametologs.
Despite the prevalence of sexual reproduction across eukaryotes, there is a remarkable diversity of sex -determination mechanisms.
Not all male-specific genes are located on the Y chromosome. Sex-linked markers and progeny sex ratio in diploid A. The accumulation of sexually antagonistic genes as a selective agent promoting the evolution of reduced recombination between primitive sex-chromosomes.
Most organisms that create their offspring using sexual reproduction have two sexes. In the case of the chicken, their Z chromosome is more similar to humans' autosome 9.
Previously, we demonstrated that male threespine stickleback fish Gasterosteus aculeatus have a heteromorphic XY pair corresponding to linkage group LG Although there is considerable variation between them in terms of associated functional impairment, each disorder has a characteristic physical, cognitive, and neurologic profile.
Species with varying levels of differentiation between the X and Y have been found in plants, and these are hypothesized to be representing different stages of sex chromosome evolution. No selective, testosterone independent, effect of the Y- chromosome was detected.
