Immediate dosage compensation is triggered by deletion of Y-linked genes in Silene latifolia

Abstract:

The loss of functional genes from non-recombining sex-specific chromosomes [1, 2], such as the Y chromosomes in mammals [3] or W chromosomes in birds [4], should result in an imbalance of gene products for sex-linked genes [5]. Different chromosome-wide systems that rebalance gene expression are known to operate in organisms with relatively old sex chromosomes [6]; e.g., Drosophila overexpress X-linked genes in males [7], while mammals shut down one of the X chromosomes in females [8]. It is ...
