The idea is instead of having a simplistic mechanism by which you have pro-male genes going all the way to make a male, in fact there is a solid balance between pro-male genes and anti-male genes and if there is a little too much of anti-male genes, there may be a female born and if there is a little too much of pro-male genes then there will be a male born.
Many insects of the order Hymenoptera instead have a haplo-diploid systemwhere the males are haploid having just one chromosome of each type while the females are diploid with chromosomes appearing in pairs. In these cases, the SOX9 gene, involved in the development of testes, can induce their development without the aid of SRY.
Stochastic allelic expression of genes gives rise to a diverse repertoire of cells and creates diversity, so although individual cell expression profiles vary, even within a clone, the net result for a cell population will be a stable outcome. Schematic drawings in ad show the hybridization pattern of both W- probes on the W chromosome.
Moth sex chromatin probed by comparative genomic hybridization CGH Genome. Insects The specimens of A. In: Pontarotti P. Therefore, the role of potential palindromes in the highly heterochromatic W chromosome of Lepidoptera remains elusive.
We calculated the efficiency of hybridization from the frequency of diploid nuclei showing a single signal for the test gene. Henry E. For each comparison, we scored female nuclei in which at least one of the two test loci was expressing from both X chromosomes Table 4.
Nuclei are counterstained with DAPI blue. In contrast, the hypothesis of co-ordinate control would predict that nearly all the nuclei sampled should show escape at both loci, and none would be discordant. Figure 3.
