Neuroendocrinology 93— The following chromosomes sort together: 13,14; 18,19; 20,21; and 25, Activation of sexual behavior by implantation of testosterone propionate and estradiol benzoate into the preoptic area of the male Japanese quail Coturnix japonica. Another approach that has been used to disentangle the role of Sry from other Y chromosome genes, has been to delete Sry from the Y chromosome and then insert it as a transgene on monotreme sex chromosomes in Mesa autosomal chromosome in both XX and XY chromosome bearing mice Wagner et al.
Monotreme sex chromosomes in Mesa order to investigate monotreme sex chromosome evolution, we performed a comparative study of platypus and echidna by chromosome painting and comparative gene mapping. Sex chromosome complement determines sex differences in aromatase expression and regulation in the stria terminalis and anterior amygdala of the developing mouse brain.
Our cross-species painting studies of the monotreme sex chromosome complements shows that the platypus and echidna translocation chains share homology over four of the five X chromosomes, but one in each species is entirely non-homologous.

Perhaps, then, complete DC between sexes, such as therian mammal XCI where monotreme sex chromosomes in Mesa X expression ratios are between the sexesis a recent evolutionary sophistication, and incomplete DC is more widespread in amniotes, and therefore ancient.

Top: the male has 27 chromosome pairs and 9 unpaired chromosomes. Two genes that might stimulate male gonad sexual differentiation in Amami spiny rats are Cbx2 and Er71 Kuroiwa et al. Examination of gene expression patterns in the female to male transition in the honeycomb grouper Epinephelus merra , which demonstrates protogynous sex change, revealed that foxl2 was elevated in the brain, pituitary, ovary, and gill but was downregulated during late transitional stage to male Alam et al.
Each sex chromosome and 13 of the expected 16 pairing regions of the 5 Xs and 4 Ys Figure 2 , middle were identified in this study. The therian X chromosome resembles platypus autosome 6 and echidna autosome 16 chromosomes Ferguson-Smith and Rens, Genome Biology.
