Cattanach observed that certain mouse strains have stronger Xces, such that the X chromosomes carrying these Xces are more likely to remain active in F1 hybrid crosses . As a result, they often do not feel comfortable in large social gatherings.
These roles are reflected in gene content and expression patterns, suggesting the Y may have less of an impact on male—female differences outside of the gonad than appearances might initially suggest. He was neither mentally retarded nor emotionally disturbed.
Some people with Klinefelter syndrome have difficulty with social skills and tend to be more shy, anxious, or immature than their peers. Ultimately such differences must be attributed to male—female variation at the genetic level, which in turn drives the development of the gonads, and production of gonadal sex hormones in utero.

Best Pract. They can also have poor judgement and do not handle stressful situations well. Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome AIS is an X-linked recessive disorder in which affected individuals have external female genitalia and breast development despite being genetically male 46XY.
Single-cell RNA-seq reveals lineage and X chromosome dynamics in human preimplantation embryos. A temperature-dependent sex determination system is found in some reptiles. Mice with a single X chromosome showed a greater degree of silencing than those with two X chromosomes.
