The region homologos to the X-chromosome inactivation centre has been disrupted in marsupial and monotreme mammals

Hore, Tim; Koina, Edda; Wakefield, Matthew; Graves, Jennifer


Marsupial, as well as eutherian, mammals are subject to X chromosome inactivation in the somatic cells of females, although the phenotype and the molecular mechanism differ in important respects. Monotreme mammals appear to subscribe at least to a form of dosage compensation of X-borne genes. An important question is whether inactivation in these non-eutherian mammals involves co-ordination by a control locus homologous to the XIST gene and neighbouring genes, which play a key regulatory role...[Show more]
