Like mammals, Lepidoptera possess female-specific sex chromatin. In a compilation of new and published data, 81% 238 investigated Lepidoptera species display one or more heterochromatin bodies in female somatic interphase cells, but not in male cells. In contrast with the similar phenomenon in mammals, this sex-specific heterochromatin does not function as a dosage compensation mechanism. Most Lepidoptera have a WZ/ZZ sex chromosome mechanism, and the sex chromatin is derived from the univalent… Expand
