Germline mutations in the Von Hippel‐Lindau disease (VHL) gene in families from North America, Europe, and Japan
Germline mutation analysis was performed in 469 VHL families from North America, Europe, and Japan. Germline mutations were identified in 300/469 (63%) of the families tested; 137 distinct intragenicExpand

Bird-like sex chromosomes of platypus imply recent origin of mammal sex chromosomes.
In therian mammals (placentals and marsupials), sex is determined by an XX female: XY male system, in which a gene (SRY) on the Y affects male determination. There is no equivalent in other amniotes,Expand
