For example, it is possible to gonadectomize mice with or without hormone replacement, to rule out subtle hormonal confounds. Bird and mammal sex-chromosome orthologs map to the same autosomal region in a salamander Ambystoma. Sex chromosome complement affects nociception and analgesia in newborn mice.

Sex chromosomes are most common in bryophytesrelatively common in vascular plants and unknown in ferns and lycophytes. The fast-evolving tra genes may be identified by a conserved 30 amino acid motif that has been identified in non- Drosophila species 12131592 Complementary sex determination systems can reside in genomic regions of substantially-reduced meiotic recombination 7088implying that evolutionary degeneration may operate.
The fruitless gene in Nasonia displays complex sex-specific splicing and contains new zinc finger domains. The sexual strain could produce the high fitness genotype much faster by recombination see figure
However, the fact that both normal cells and cancerous cells follow similar rules leaves open the possibility that the preference for the ratio is linked to culture conditions, or the transformation method used to immortalize the normal cells, rather than any evolution towards single-celled status.

Recently, it has been established that parental imprinting can also lead to different levels of expression between the two parentally imprinted chromosomes. Initial sequencing and analysis of the human genome. High frequency de novo alterations in the long-range genomic structure of the mouse pseudoautosomal region.
A genetic basis for a postmeiotic x versus y chromosome intragenomic conflict in the mouse. However, the model has two main disadvantages: the homozygous Sf1 -null mice are produced from heterozygous null parents, so that each litter produces a relatively small number of homozygous null pups, and each homozygous mouse must receive an adrenal transplant.
