TY - JOUR. T1 - Differential expression of steroid sulphatase locus on active and inactive human X chromosome. AU - Migeon, Barbara R. AU - Shapiro, Larry J.. AU - Norum, Robert A.. AU - Mohandas, Thuluvancheri. AU - Axelman, Joyce. AU - Dabora, Rebecca L.. PY - 1982. Y1 - 1982. N2 - The X chromosome in mammalian somatic cells is subject to unique regulation - usually genes on a single X chromosome are expressed while those on other X chromosomes are inactivated1. The X-locus for steroid sulphatase (STS; EC 3.1.6.2), the microsomal enzyme that catalyses the hydrolysis of various 3β-hydroxysteroid sulphates, is exceptional because it seems to escape inactivation. Evidence for this comes from fibroblast clones in females heterozygous for mutations that result in a severe deficiency of this enzyme in affected males; all clones from these heterozygotes have STS activity, and enzyme-deficient clones that are expected if the locus were subject to inactivation2, have not been found3. Further evidence ...
The X chromosome in humans spans more than 153 million base pairs (the building material of DNA). It represents about 800 protein-coding genes compared to the Y chromosome containing about 70 genes, out of 20,000-25,000 total genes in the human genome. Each person usually has one pair of sex chromosomes in each cell. Females have two X chromosomes, whereas males have one X and one Y chromosome. Both males and females retain one of their mothers X chromosomes, and females retain their second X chromosome from their father. Since the father retains his X chromosome from his mother, a human female has one X chromosome from her paternal grandmother (fathers side), and one X chromosome from her mother. This inheritance pattern follows the Fibonacci numbers at a given ancestral depth. Genetic disorders that are due to mutations in genes on the X chromosome are described as X linked. The X chromosome carries hundreds of genes but few, if any, of these have anything to do directly with sex ...
X monosomic mice (39,XO) have a remarkably mild phenotype when compared to women with Turner syndrome (45,XO). The generally accepted hypothesis to explain this discrepancy is that the number of genes on the mouse X chromosome which escape X inactivation, and thus are expressed at higher levels in females, is very small. However this hypothesis has never been tested and only a small number of genes have been assayed for their X-inactivation status in the mouse. We performed a global expression analysis in four somatic tissues (brain, liver, kidney and muscle) of adult 40,XX and 39,XO mice using the Illumina Mouse WG-6 v1_1 Expression BeadChip and an extensive validation by quantitative real time PCR, in order to identify which genes are expressed from both X chromosomes. We identified several genes on the X chromosome which are overexpressed in XX females, including those previously reported as escaping X inactivation, as well as new candidates. However, the results obtained by microarray and qPCR were
Unlike the autosomes, recombination between the X chromosome and Y chromosome is often thought to be constrained to two small pseudoautosomal regions (PARs) at the tips of each sex chromosome. The PAR1 spans the first 2.7 Mb of the proximal arm of the human sex chromosomes, while the much smaller PAR2 encompasses the distal 320 kb of the long arm of each sex chromosome. In addition to the PAR1 and PAR2, there is a human-specific X-transposed region that was duplicated from the X to the Y. The X-transposed region is often not excluded from X-specific analyses, unlike the PARs, because it is not thought to routinely recombine. Genetic diversity is expected to be higher in recombining regions than in non-recombining regions because recombination reduces the effect of linked selection. In this study, we investigate patterns of genetic diversity in noncoding regions across the entire X chromosome of a global sample of 26 unrelated genetic females. We observe that genetic diversity in the PAR1 is ...
Female mammals inactivate one of the two X chromosomes in each somatic cell in order to balance the X-linked gene dosage between females and males (X chromosome inactivation, XCI). This process is mediated by non-coding RNA X inactive specific transcript (Xist). Here, I show that, when embryonic stem (ES) cells were cultured under undifferentiated condition, inducible Xist was sufficient to silence genes in vitro. Furthermore, the induced XCI was counteracted by the endogenous capability of X chromosome reactivation (XCR) in the pluripotent ES cells. Thus, perturbing XCR players should tip the balance towards stronger gene silencing effects. Using this experimental system, we show that shRNA knock- down of histone acetyltransferase Kat8 and its associated protein from Male Specific Lethal (MSL) complex, Msl2, significantly enhanced the gene silencing effect of induced XCI in undifferentiated ES cells. Interestingly, Kat8 and Msl2 are involved in Drosophila dosage compensation by up-regulating ...
X chromosome inactivation (XCI), which occurs only in female (XX) and not in male (XY) embryos, ensures dosage compensation of X‐linked genes between the sexes. The initial steps in XCI involve a counting process, which senses the X chromosomes/autosomes ratio and restricts XCI to female mouse embryos. Initiation of XCI in the embryo proper also includes the random choice of the active (Xa) and the inactive (Xi) Xs in each cell. The selected Xi becomes the target of a chromosome‐wide mechanism of transcriptional silencing, which constitutes an exciting paradigm for epigenetic regulations and confirms interest in the molecular dissection of the X‐inactivation centre (Xic), a locus on the X chromosome that contains the Xist gene and the elements involved in counting, choice and silencing.. The random form of XCI occurs around the time of implantation of the late female blastocyst, in the differentiating epiblast that derives from the inner cell mass (ICM) and that will give rise to the ...
In species with chromosomal sex determination, X chromosomes are predicted to evolve faster than autosomes because of positive selection on recessive alleles or weak purifying selection. We investigated X chromosome evolution in Stegodyphus spiders that differ in mating system, sex ratio, and population dynamics. We assigned scaffolds to X chromosomes and autosomes using a novel method based on flow cytometry of sperm cells and reduced representation sequencing. We estimated coding substitution patterns (dN/dS) in a subsocial outcrossing species (S. africanus) and its social inbreeding and female-biased sister species (S. mimosarum), and found evidence for faster-X evolution in both species. X chromosome-to-autosome diversity (piX/piA) ratios were estimated in multiple populations. The average piX/piA estimates of S. africanus (0.57 [95% CI: 0.55-0.60]) was lower than the neutral expectation of 0.75, consistent with more hitchhiking events on X-linked loci and/or a lower X chromosome mutation ...
Transfer of a normal Chinese hamster X chromosome (carried in a mouse A9 donor cell line) to a nickel-transformed Chinese hamster cell line with an Xq chromosome deletion resulted in senescense of these previously immortal cells. At early passages of the A9/CX donor cells, the hamster X chromosome was highly active, inducing senescence in 100% of the colonies obtained after its transfer into the nickel-transformed cells. However, senescence was reduced to 50% when Chinese hamster X chromosomes were transferred from later passage A9 cells. Full senescing activity of the intact hamster X chromosome was restored by treatment of the donor mouse cells with 5-azacytidine, which induced demethylation of DNA. These results suggest that a senescence gene or genes, which may be located on the Chinese hamster X chromosome, can be regulated by DNA methylation, and that escape from senescence and possibly loss of tumor suppressor gene activity can occur by epigenetic mechanisms. ...
HUMARA Assay is one of the most widely used methods to determine the clonal origin of a tumor. The method is based on X chromosome inactivation and it takes the advantage of having different methylation status of a gene called HUMARA (short for Human Androgen receptor) that is located on X chromosome. Considering the fact that once one X chromosome is inactivated in a cell, all other cells derived from it will have the same X chromosome inactivated, this approach becomes a great tool to differentiate a monoclonal population from a polyclonal one in a female tissue. HUMARA gene, in particular, has three important features that make it highly convenient for the purpose. 1-) The gene is located on X chromosome and it goes through inactivation by methylation in normal embryogenesis of a female infant. The fact that most-but not all-genes on X chromosome undergo inactivation, this feature becomes an important one. 2-) Human Androgen Receptor gene alleles have varying numbers of CAG repeats. Thus, ...
Background: The haplotypes of the X chromosome are accessible to direct count in males, whereas the diplotypes of the females may be inferred knowing the haplotype of their sons or fathers. Here, we investigated: 1) the possible large-scale haplotypic structure of the X chromosome in a Caucasian population sample, given the single-nucleotide polymorphism ( SNP) maps and genotypes provided by Illumina and Affimetrix for Genetic Analysis Workshop 14, and, 2) the performances of widely used programs in reconstructing haplotypes from population genotypic data, given their known distribution in a sample of unrelated individuals. Results: All possible unrelated mother-son pairs of Caucasian ancestry ( N = 104) were selected from the 143 families of the Collaborative Study on the Genetics of Alcoholism pedigree files, and the diplotypes of the mothers were inferred from the X chromosomes of their sons. The marker set included 313 SNPs at an average density of 0.47 Mb. Linkage disequilibrium between ...
So traits that have large additive genetic components are more easily changed by selection. The authors set out to investigate the genetic basis of gene expression level in Drosophila (for many genes measured on array) and how this differs between males and females. By a series of crosses, the authors find that many more genes show additive genetic variation in their expression level in males than in females, and that a number of these genes are found on the X chromosome (as well as on the autosomes). Now the X chromosome seems to be be the key to this difference in the form of genetic variation (and the authors conduct further experiments to show this). As males have only a single X chromosome there simply is not any dominance due to genetic variation on the X chromosome (at least not simple non-epistatic dominance). The genetic variation on the X chromosome in males mainly contributes to the additive genetic component of variation (as there is no second allele to cause dominance). So genes on ...
The figure shows that a paternal grandmother (PGM) is more closely related to her granddaughter because the granddaughter carries a more or less exact replica of one of her X Chromosomes (the blue X chromosome in the figure) while her grandson carries neither or her X Chromosomes. Theoretically, she should prefer her granddaughter to her grandson. The maternal grandmother (MGM) is equally related to grandson and granddaughter, so she should not show favoritism. The chromosomes with red and black parts result from recombination (crossover) during meiosis.. The mother has two X chromosomes herself, so the probability of the mother passing any specific X chromosome gene to either a boy or a girl child is likewise 0.5. Therefore, the probability of any specific X chromosome gene being passed on from a maternal grandmother to a grandchild is 0.25 (0.5 x 0.5). From the standpoint of the maternal grandmother, there is no difference between grandson and granddaughter in X-chromosome relatedness and, ...
In this study, we investigated whether XIST and 53BP1 expression, two potential markers of resistance to HD alkylating chemotherapy in BRCA1-deficient tumors identified in preclinical models (12, 13), could be used as predictive markers in breast cancer patients. We present early and preliminary evidence that high XIST expression or low 53BP1 expression could be used to identify BRCA1-like tumors that have early events and poorer outcome than BRCA1-like tumors that have low XIST and high 53BP1 expression.. The mechanism of loss of XIST expression seems to be through loss of the inactive X chromosome (12). We observed that the copy number profiles of some patients hinted at losing an X chromosome. However, we are unable to tell whether this is the inactive X chromosome and whether those without apparent loss may have copy number neutral DNA loss. These findings fit with the literature in which XIST expression, deregulation, and loss of the inactive X chromosome have been described in basal-like ...
A recent study in chimpanzees reported an excess of dN/dS compared with pN/pS on the X chromosome but not on autosomes [15]. This result was interpreted as the consequence of a higher rate of fixation of partial recessive beneficial alleles on the X chromosome, again a consequence of hemizygosity. To evaluate this result in humans, we computed the DoS statistic for each human chromosome. A positive value of the DoS (excess of dN/dS relative to pN/pS) is indicative of positive selection while a negative DoS reflects the influence of purifying selection. We report that the human X chromosome does indeed have a higher DoS than the autosomes (−0.134 versus −0.171 for X chromosome and median autosomes, respectively). Some autosomes have, however, a DoS very close to that of the X chromosome, for example, chromosome 21 (DoS = −0.129) and chromosome 14 (DoS = −0.139). Moreover, the confidence interval on DoS, estimated by bootstrapping genes within chromosomes (1000 replicates), was very large ...

The X chromosome of the Rehnia spinosus (Orthoptera) spermatocyte exists in a vesicle separate from the rest of the nucleus during its replication. This chromosome is typically heterochromatic, and late replicating. After replication the chromosome vesicle fuses with the nucleus. Cytophotometric determination of DNA and histone during replication of the chromosome revealed two types of histone. One class increases in amount in proportion to the DNA. The second class remains constant as DNA doubles, and probably increases later. Autoradiographic studies of incorporation of amino acids indicates that histone labelling occurs during chromosome replication. However, a lag in amino acid incorporation suggests that DNA replication in the X chromosome, while accompanied, or closely followed, by complexing with histone, is not necessarily coupled with its synthesis.. ...
The natural function of the XIST gene, located on the X chromosome, is to effectively silence one of the two X chromosomes in female cells, making expression of X-linked genes similar to that of men, who have just one X chromosome. The large XIST RNA is produced early in development from one of the females two X chromosomes, and this unique RNA then "paints" the X chromosome and modifies its structure so that its DNA cant be expressed to produce proteins and other components. This effectively renders most of the genes on the extra chromosome inactive.. Lawrence and colleague Lisa Hall PhD, research assistant professor of cell and developmental biology at UMMS, became motivated by the idea that this effect might be replicated in an extra chromosome 21 in trisomic cells and Jun Jiang, PhD, instructor of cell and developmental biology at UMMS, worked with Dr. Lawrence to begin a research project to insert the XIST gene into one chromosome 21 - supported by NIH funding for high-risk, high-impact ...
X-linked genes are found on the sex X chromosome. X-linked genes just like autosomal genes have both dominant and recessive types. Recessive X-linked disorders are rarely seen in females and usually only affect males. This is because males inherit their X chromosome and all X-linked genes will be inherited from the maternal side. Fathers only pass on their Y chromosome to their sons, so no X-linked traits will be inherited from father to son. Females express X-linked disorders when they are homozygous for the disorder and become carriers when they are heterozygous. An infamous recessive X-linked disorder is Hemophilia A. Hemophilia is a disorder where blood does not clot properly due to a shortage of clotting factor VIII. This disorder gained recognition as it traveled through royal families, notably the descendents of Britains Queen Victoria. X-linked dominant inheritance will show the same phenotype as a heterozygote and homozygote. Just like X-linked inheritance, there will be a lack of ...

Citation: N/A Interpretive Summary: Identification of genes accounting for significant effects on economically important traits ultimately requires alignment of the human and swine maps. Until now only a few genes have been mapped by linkage analysis on porcine chromosome X. Though the genes mapped to chromosome X are the same in such distinct species as human and mouse, the relative orders of genes are frequently quite different. Therefore to determine if the order of genes on the pig and human X chromosomes are the same we mapped four new genes to add to the five other genes previously mapped. Even after the addition of four genes to the porcine linkage map there is no evidence of rearrangements in gene order between porcine and human X chromosomes. Of newly mapped genes only TBG can be considered a possible candidate gene as it maps to the near proximity of QTL for fatness. Technical Abstract: For amplification of the porcine gene fragments amplification primers were designed from human gene ...
A study from a team of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators points toward a potential strategy for treating X-linked disorders - those caused by mutations in the X chromosome - in females.
March 23, 2016: If a woman has two X chromosomes, how do we know which X chromosome each of her offspring has? She received one X from her mother and one X from her father. Will her offspring receive the X from her mother or the X from her father? Is there a 50/50 chance of either? Or does it depend upon the offsprings sex- i.e. females receive X chromosome donated from grandmother, males receive X chromosome donated from grandfather? Do we know for sure ...
Illustration of an X chromosome. Chromosomes are a packaged form of the genetic material DNA, which condenses into chromosomes during cell replication for ease of division and transport into the new cell. Each chromosome consists of two identical strands (chromatids), aligned parallel to each other and joined at an area called a centromere. - Stock Image C027/7004

A mode of inheritance in which a mutation in a gene on the X chromosome causes the phenotype to be expressed in males who are hemizygous for the gene mutation (i.e., they have only one X chromosome) and in females who are homozygous for the gene mutation (i.e., they have a copy of the gene mutation on each of their two X chromosomes). Carrier females who have only one copy of the mutation do not usually express the phenotype, although differences in X-chromosome inactivation can lead to varying degrees of clinical expression in carrier females ...

Randomly, one of two X/X chromosomes is deactivated {for gene balancing (males have only one X chromosome )}. Because one X comes from mother and one from father, they may have different alleles. Thus, a clone of tissue produced from ancestral cell with, say, fathers deactivated X chromosome will have different genotype than a clone produced from the ancestral cell with deactivated mothers X chromosome ...

A few days ago I discussed a new paper which explores the patterns of natural selection in the genome of the X chromosome. As you know the X is carried disproportionately by females, as males have only one copy, so it offers up an interesting window into evolutionary dynamics (see The Red Queen for a popular treatment).

The University of Washington group uses X-linked markers to judge whether a tissue-sample is monoclonal or not. The method is derived from the Lyon Hypothesis that early in human gestation, female embryos randomly and permanently inactivate either the paternal or maternal X-chromosome in each cell. If a female is heterozygous for a particular X-linked marker, the heterozygosity makes it possible to establish which cells are descended from a progenitor cell in which the paternal X-chromosome was permanently inactivated, and to establish which cells are descended from a progenitor cell in which the maternal X-chromosome was permanently inactivated. In their 1997 paper, Murry et al (1997, p.701) report as follows: "The principal findings of this study are 1) the majority of atherosclerotic plaques have a monoclonal population of cells, 2) the monoclonal population is composed of smooth muscle cells, 3) monoclonality is present both in aortic and coronary plaques, 4) although most samples of medial ...
Why women are disproportionately affected by autoimmune disease is not fully known or understood, although the hypotheses are numerous. Some research suggests that estrogen may help antibody production and immune system response, but can also lead to an overly active immune system. Other research indicates that genes on the X chromosomes may play a role in these immune system mutinies, and women - who have two X chromosomes - may thus be at an increased risk over men who have only one X chromosome ...

(If the mother has a flawed X chromosome, selecting sperm that carry the fathers healthy X chromosome--thus producing a girl--will help reduce the chance of bearing a child with an X-linked defect.) And it may appeal to any couple who want more control over the sex of their offspring. Indeed, 90 percent of the couples participating in the institutes trial already had two or three children and wanted to balance the number of sons and daughters. But the cost of sorting sperm and flushing them into the uterus--at $1,500 for the sorting procedure and $1,000 for the insemination, with no guarantee of pregnancy--will limit the procedures use in family balancing to determined, well-heeled parents.
