Sexually dimorphic expression of the X-linked gene Eif2s3x mRNA but not protein in mouse brain.

Abstract

Higher expression of X-linked genes in females might contribute to brain sexual differentiation. Although X-inactivation is thought to balance gene dosage between the two sexes, some X-linked genes escape X inactivation and therefore are expressed from both X chromosomes in females. Eif2s3x encodes subunit three of eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2… (More)
