Endow, S. The pairing of microchromosomes does not indicate homology but morphological similarity. Here we establish a previously unknown coevolutionary relationship in 94 amniote species between sex-determining mechanism and whether a species bears live young or lays eggs. Thompson, J.

Amplification of microsatellite repeat motifs is associated with the evolutionary differentiation and heterochromatinization of sex chromosomes in Sauropsida.
Stable Cretaceous sex chromosomes enable molecular sexing in softshell turtles Testudines: Trionychidae. Cytogenetic insights into the evolution of chromosomes and sex determination reveal striking homology of turtle sex chromosomes to amphibian sex chromosomes and sex determination in reptiles alive in Cambridge.
Discovery of the youngest sex chromosomes reveals first case of convergent co-option of ancestral autosomes in turtles.
Sex determination was discovered in the mealworm by the American geneticist Nettie Stevens in Sarre; Jennifer A. As expected, the authors identified more markers in sequencing data from rattlesnake females than males. There are certainly many known examples of fish and amphibians with GSD, in which both high and low incubation temperatures can cause sex reversal.
Sex-determining mechanisms in reptiles are broadly divided into two main categories: genotypic sex determination GSD and temperature-dependent sex determination TSD. A sex-determination system is a biological system that determines the development of sexual characteristics in an organism.
King M. A new species of Pelodiscus from northeastern Indochina Testudines, Trionychidae. Three amniote lineages, the geckos infraorder Gekkota , the dragon lizards family Agamidae and the turtles order Testudines , show extensive variability of sex determination systems, and closely related species have either GSD or ESD 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , making them excellent groups for exploring the evolution of sex determination.
