The region homologous to the X-chromosome inactivation centre has been disrupted in marsupial and monotreme mammals

Abstract

Marsupial, as well as eutherian, mammals are subject to X chromosome inactivation in the somatic cells of females, although the phenotype and the molecular mechanism differ in important respects. Monotreme mammals appear to subscribe at least to a form of dosage compensation of X-borne genes. An important question is whether inactivation in these non… (More)
