Physical mapping of the elephant X chromosome: conservation of gene order over 105 million years

Rodriguez Delgado, Claudia; Waters, Paul; Gilbert, Clement; Robinson, Terence J; Graves, Jennifer


All therian mammals (eutherians and marsupials) have an XX female/XY male sex chromosome system or some variant of it. The X and Y evolved from a homologous pair of autosomes over the 166 million years since therian mammals diverged from monotremes. Comparing the sex chromosomes of eutherians and marsupials defined an ancient X conserved region that is shared between species of these mammalian clades. However, the eutherian X (and the Y) was augmented by a recent addition (XAR) that is...[Show more]
