    ..The Xmr protein provides a new tool for the investigation of sex chromosome behaviour during meiosis in mammals. ..
  2. Di Carlo A, Travia G, De Felici M. The meiotic specific synaptonemal complex protein SCP3 is expressed by female and male primordial germ cells of the mouse embryo. Int J Dev Biol. 2000;44:241-4 pubmed
    ..This strongly supports the hypothesis that primordial germ cells are programmed to enter meiosis unrespective of the sex and that foetal testis produces a factor that inhibits such programme. ..

    ..In addition, because of the localization of the Xlr sequence family on the mouse X chromosome, the human equivalent of Xlr is a candidate gene for premature ovarian failure. ..

    ..The presence of MAEL in these critical compartments of male germ cells and its interactions provide a link suggesting the involvement of the miRNA pathway in MSUC...
