Thomas Morgan won the Nobel Prize for using these crosses to demonstrate that genes such as white were on chromosomes in this case the X-chromos ome. Locke- CC:AN Hormonal mechanism: With this system, used by mammals for example, including humans, the zygote initially develops into a sexually undifferentiated embryo that can become either sex.
He later studied physics at University College, London. The Orange gene in cats is a good demonstration of how the mammalian dosage compensation system affects gene expression.
They have been on a separate evolutionary path from humans for only million years. This whole array of characteristics or traits can manifest or express in a dominant, recessive, co-dominant, or intermediate fashion. Contributors and Attributions Dr. Since only men inherit Y chromosomes, they are the only ones to inherit Y-linked traits.

This is a group of bleeding disorders in which the blood takes longer than usual to clot.
All cells intrinsically know, individually, which sex they are and develop accordingly, giving the appropriate sexual characteristics and phenotype. Most of the Y chromosome genes are involved with essential cell house-keeping activities 16 genes and sperm production 9 gene families.
