Sex determination: two copies for one cock.
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Science and Technology, Biology, Department of Ecology and Genetics, Evolutionary Biology.
2009 (English)In: Current Biology, ISSN 0960-9822, E-ISSN 1879-0445, Vol. 19, no 19, R909-R910 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The molecular mechanism of sex determination in birds has long remained mysterious. Genetically male chicken embryos, which have two Z sex chromosomes, develop female gonads when the Z chromosome-linked gene DMRT1 is knocked out. This suggests that sex is determined by Z chromosome dosage.
