Isolation of chromosomal regions controlling intersex development in a marsupial
A marsupial (Sminthopsis douglasi) with bilateral intersexuality had a hemiscrotum on the right side and a hemi-pouch with nipples on the left. A normal female karyotype (2n = 14, XX) was present in cells from the right (male) side, while cells from the left (female) side initially had a female karyotype plus two dot-like chromosomes (2n = 14, XX + 2B). It is proposed that the dots represented a region deleted from the X chromosome that contains the "pouch-mammary/scrotum" (PMS) switch gene...[Show more]
