Sequencing of the human Y chromosome has uncovered the peculiarities of the genomic organization of a heterogametic sex chromosome of old evolutionary age, and has led to many insights into the evolutionary changes that occurred during its long history. We have studied the genomic organization of the medaka fish Y chromosome, which is one of the youngest heterogametic sex chromosomes on which molecular data are available. The Y specific and adjacent regions were sequenced and compared to the X… Expand
DNA methylation and heterochromatinization in the male-specific region of the primitive Y chromosome of papaya.
TLDR
The results suggest that DNA methylation and heterochromatinization play an important role in the early stage of sex chromosome evolution. Expand
The sex-specific region of sex chromosomes in animals and plants
TLDR
The chicken Z and the human X chromosomes appeared to have acquired testis-expressed genes and expanded in intergenic regions, defying the notion that the pace of evolution in the SDR was fast at early stages but slowed down overtime. Expand

TLDR
The findings indicate that sex chromosomes did not evolve at the family level in Caricaceae, and reinforce the theory that sex chromosome evolved at the species level in some lineages. Expand
Genomic degradation of a young Y chromosome in Drosophila miranda
TLDR
Patterns of genome evolution in D. miranda demonstrate that degeneration of a recently formed Y chromosome can proceed very rapidly, by both an accumulation of repetitive DNA and degenerating of protein-coding genes, support a random model of Y inactivation. Expand
Reconstruction of the Origin of a Neo-Y Sex Chromosome and Its Evolution in the Spotted Knifejaw, Oplegnathus punctatus
Abstract Sex chromosomes are a peculiar constituent of the genome because the evolutionary forces that fix the primary sex-determining gene cause genic degeneration and accumulation of junk DNA inExpand
Transposable elements and early evolution of sex chromosomes in fish
TLDR
The role of TEs in the initial steps of differentiation and evolution of sex chromosomes is highlighted, and it is clearly demonstrated that the observed TE-rich sex determination locus originated from a TE-poor genomic region, strengthening the link between TE accumulation and emergence of the sex determination Locus.

The Y Chromosome That Lost the Male-Determining Function Behaves as an X Chromosome in the Medaka Fish, Oryzias latipes
TLDR
Results demonstrate that aberrant Y chromosomes behaving as X chromosomes have been maintained in this population of medaka, and investigate the frequencies of the sex chromosome types over four successive generations. Expand
Chromosomal location and gene paucity of the male specific region on papaya Y chromosome
TLDR
This work investigated the chromosomal location of papaya’s small male specific region of the hermaphrodite Y (Yh) chromosome (MSY) and its genomic features, which resulted in the largest collection of contiguous genomic DNA sequences of a Y chromosome in flowering plants. Expand
Molecular mechanisms of sex determination and evolution of the Y-chromosome: Insights from the medakafish (Oryzias latipes)
TLDR
This review will mainly focus on one species, the medaka (Oryzias latipes), a small laboratory fish model species originating from freshwater biotopes of Japan and Korea, because the most advanced knowledge of genetic sex determination in a non-mammalian species has been obtained in this species.

Amplified Fragments of an Autosome-Borne Gene Constitute a Significant Component of the W Sex Chromosome of Eremias velox (Reptilia, Lacertidae)
TLDR
The results provide further evidence for the view of W and Y chromosomes as not just “degraded” copies of Z and X chromosomes but independent genomic segments in which novel genetic elements may arise. Expand

A Gradual Process of Recombination Restriction in the Evolutionary History of the Sex Chromosomes in Dioecious Plants
TLDR
Although the X-Y system evolved quite recently in Silene compared to mammals, the results suggest that similar processes have been at work in the evolution of sex chromosomes in plants and mammals, and shed some light on the molecular mechanisms suppressing recombination between X and Y chromosomes. Expand
Sex chromosome evolution: molecular aspects of Y-chromosome degeneration in Drosophila.
TLDR
Comparison of four large genomic regions located on the neo-sex chromosomes that contain a total of 12 homologous genes finds that both 5'- and 3'-flanking regions of genes and intron sequences are less constrained on the Nazi-era Y-chromosome compared to its neo-X homolog, which shows surprisingly uniform signs of degeneration.

The male-specific region of the human Y chromosome is a mosaic of discrete sequence classes
TLDR
The male-specific region of the Y chromosome, the MSY, differentiates the sexes and comprises 95% of the chromosome's length, and is a mosaic of heterochromatic sequences and three classes of euchromatics sequences: X-transposed, X-degenerate and ampliconic. Expand
Evolutionary Origin of the Medaka Y Chromosome
TLDR
It is shown that the medaka sex-determining gene originated approximately 10 million years ago, which makes dmrt1bY and the corresponding Y chromosome the youngest male sex-Determining system, at least in vertebrates, known so far. Expand

TLDR
It is found that in the fish medaka the Y chromosome-specific region spans only about 280 kb and contains a duplicated copy of the autosomal DMRT1 gene, named D MRT1Y, which is the only functional gene in this chromosome segment and maps precisely to the male sex-determining locus. Expand
A primitive Y chromosome in papaya marks incipient sex chromosome evolution
TLDR
It is shown that papaya contains a primitive Y chromosome, with a male-specific region that accounts for only about 10% of the chromosome but has undergone severe recombination suppression and DNA sequence degeneration, providing direct evidence for the origin of sex chromosomes from autosomes.

The hypothesis that the heterogeneous sex chromosomes in the medaka were derived from suppression of recombination between autosomal chromosomes is supported. Expand
DMY is a Y-specific DM-domain gene required for male development in the medaka fish
TLDR
Rec recombinant breakpoint analysis is used to restrict the sex-determining region in medaka fish to a 530-kilobase stretch of the Y chromosome, and it is suggested that thesex-specific DMY is required for testicular development and is a prime candidate for the medaka sex-Determining gene. Expand
The degeneration of Y chromosomes.
TLDR
The results suggest that the effective population sizes of evolving Y or neo-Y chromosomes are severely reduced, as expected if some or all of the hypothesized processes leading to degeneration are operative. Expand
