Sexually dimorphic expression and estradiol mediated up-regulation of a sex-linked ribosomal gene, RPS6, in the zebra finch brain.

Abstract

Sex-linked genes are considered to be a major contributor to neural sex differences in zebra finches. While several candidates have been identified, additional ones are continuously being discovered. Here we report on a novel Z-linked ribosomal gene (rpS6) that is enhanced in the male brain as compared to the female's throughout life. In both sexes… (More)
