Megapodes had formerly been thought to exhibit this phenomenon, but were found to actually have different temperature-dependent embryo mortality rates for each sex.
It is thus the male's sperm that determines the sex of each offspring in mammals. Allosomes not only carry the genes that determine male and female traits, but also those for some other characteristics as well.
The incomplete, and unstable imprinted inactivation of the paternally inherited X-chromosome is observed in certain eutherians for example, rodents at pre implantation stages of embryonic development and is retained in the extraembryonic organs that derive from the fetus.
Experimental and epidemiological studies in humans and animals also demonstrate an association between low or high FPI and impaired glucose tolerance, blood pressure and coronary heart disease [ 68 ]. Claus H.
Schaffner, Nonetheless, unequal gene expression by the sex chromosomes has an impact much earlier, beginning at conception, and may set the context for events in later life reviewed in [ 15 , 33 , , ].
