Steinemann S, Steinemann M. Rapid de novo evolution of X chromosome dosage compensation in Silene latifoliaa plant with young sex chromosomes. The accumulation of sexually antagonistic genes as a selective agent promoting the evolution of reduced recombination between primitive sex chromosomes.
Alternative splicing profile and sex-preferential gene expression in the female and male Pacific Abalone Haliotis discus hannai. We believe that data generated by these new technologies will both enable tests of some current hypotheses and lead to refinement and development of new theoretical frameworks.

At meiosis the X and Y chromosomes first pair then disjoin and pass to different cells. The failure of autosomes to properly pair and recombine during meiosis.
Search for:. Finally, some authors have argued that the most important way forward is more comparative studies of different sex-determining systems [ 129 ]. Next, sex-specific genes become linked to the sex-determining region, and suppression of recombination evolves in the heterozygous sex since it is advantageous for these genes to be inherited together [ 2 ].

However, if they become admixed, the probability that sexually antagonistic loci will be in linkage disequilibrium with sex-determining genes increases, fulfilling a key assumption of the sexual antagonism models. Evolution 69 , — For example, if possession of a placenta increases the degree of sex-specific selection and therefore likelihood of sex chromosome differentiation, it could be interesting to look for an association between placental development and turnover events in fish.
