A variety of species with XX female/ XY male sex chromosomes have independently evolved effective mechanisms of sex chromosome dosage compensation (DC). This suggests that a large-scale sexual imbalance in gene expression, resulting from the sex difference in copy number of X genes, is typically not tolerated during evolution (Meyer et al., 2004).
