1cromosoma X masculino
- Remarkably, almost all of these traits map genetically to the X chromosome.
- Analysis of males for most loci allowed these loci to be mapped to autosomes or the X chromosome.
- In most species males carry a single X chromosome and two autosomes, while females have two copies of both.
- The largest cluster of imprinted genes in humans is the X chromosome.
- In contrast to the autosomes, recombination of the X chromosome occurs only in females.
