    ..Comparative mapping indicates that in man these genes lie in separate conserved DNA segments. ..

    ..Based on these results, we propose a model for the generation of the original Sxr region and the Sxr' and Sxr719 variants. ..

    ..We compared our molecular dating estimates to the fossil record in order to propose a biogeographic scenario for the evolution of Bovini during the Neogene. ..
  4. Slim R, Levilliers J, Ludecke H, Claussen U, Nguyen V, Gough N, et al. A human pseudoautosomal gene encodes the ANT3 ADP/ATP translocase and escapes X-inactivation. Genomics. 1993;16:26-33 pubmed
    ..This gene is transcribed from the Y chromosome and from the active and inactive X chromosomes. This gene thus escapes X-inactivation as predicted for genes belonging to the pseudoautosomal region. ..
  5. Dutrillaux A, Dutrillaux B. Evolution of the Sex Chromosomes in Beetles. I. The Loss of the Y Chromosome. Cytogenet Genome Res. 2017;152:97-104 pubmed publisher
    ..In conclusion, following Y chromosome loss, various strategies using nucleolar proteins have been developed to facilitate the migration of the unique X at meiotic anaphase I. ..
  6. Cocquet J, Ellis P, Mahadevaiah S, Affara N, Vaiman D, Burgoyne P. A genetic basis for a postmeiotic X versus Y chromosome intragenomic conflict in the mouse. PLoS Genet. 2012;8:e1002900 pubmed publisher
    ..It also provides a biological basis for the concept that intragenomic conflict is an important evolutionary force which impacts on gene expression, genome structure, and speciation...
  7. Dutrillaux A, Mercier J, Dutrillaux B. X-Y-autosome translocation, chromosome compaction, NOR expression and heterochromatin insulation in the Scarabaeid beetle Dynastes hercules hercules. Cytogenet Genome Res. 2007;116:305-10 pubmed
  8. Morey C, Navarro P, Debrand E, Avner P, Rougeulle C, Clerc P. The region 3' to Xist mediates X chromosome counting and H3 Lys-4 dimethylation within the Xist gene. EMBO J. 2004;23:594-604 pubmed
    ..Our results raise the possibility that H3 Lys-4 dimethylation within Xist may be functionally implicated in the counting process...
  9. Belin V, Cusin V, Viot G, Girlich D, Toutain A, Moncla A, et al. SHOX mutations in dyschondrosteosis (Leri-Weill syndrome). Nat Genet. 1998;19:67-9 pubmed
    ..Here, we report large-scale deletions (in seven families) and a nonsense mutation (in one family) of SHOX in patients with DCS and show that Langer mesomelic dwarfism results from homozygous mutations at the DCS locus. ..

    ..In addition, two Y-specific polymorphisms were found 5' to the SRY gene, and a sequence variant was identified 3' to the SRY polyadenylation site. No duplications of the DSS region in 20 of these patients were detected. ..

    ..The Xmr protein provides a new tool for the investigation of sex chromosome behaviour during meiosis in mammals. ..

    ..This cDNA, designated PL10, detects a mRNA of approximately 4 kb which is highly expressed in mouse testis, but not in male or female mouse liver. The gene corresponding to this cDNA is also well conserved among vertebrates. ..

    ..Finally, using an Sxr-specific probe we can define multiple Y-chromosome haplotypes in the mouse showing that the region is evolving very rapidly. ..

    ..Moreover, two isodicentric Y chromosomes, classified as normal by cytogenetic methods, were detected. Therefore, Yq microdeletions may be associated with Y chromosomal instability leading to the formation of 45,XO cell lines...

    ..As Slx/Slxl1 and Sly genes have been shown to be involved in the XY intra-genomic conflict, which affects the offspring sex ratio, Ssty may constitute another player in this conflict...
