Female sex chromosomes are represented by in Southampton SAC acts as a gatekeeper, only allowing a cell to pass through and so divide if its chromosomes are all ready to do so, in order to preserve the cell's identity and proper function. Science News. Jacobs, Patricia A.
Keyword: Search. We hypothesise that imbalances of maternal origin arise predominantly through NAHR during meiosis, while the majority of those of paternal origin arise through male-specific mechanisms other than NAHR. Expository science: Forms and functions of popularisation.
Five recombination hot spots are detected, with differences in location between the sexes.
Among the LCR-mediated rearrangements there were equal numbers of maternally and paternally derived cases, while the non-LCR rearrangements showed a significant excess of paternal cases over a wide size range.

Male recombination correlates with repetitive DNA, whereas female recombination does not. Males with 47,XYY cannot be characterised by discriminating physical or behavioural features. Views Read Edit View history. The Lancet. Price, Female sex chromosomes are represented by in Southampton H.
Boy or Girl? Keyword: Search. Breakpoint intervals were screened for the presence of low copy repeats LCRs to distinguish between rearrangements resulting from non-allelic homologous recombination NAHR and those due to other mechanisms.
We found 6 putative mosaics: 3 among the young mothers, none among the old mothers, 2 among the fathers and 1 among the spouses of the fathers. If cells don't have a SAC, or the SAC is damaged in some way when cells divide, often the female cells inherit the wrong number of chromosomes.
