Difference in gene expression for when male XY and female XX samples were aligned to a default and sex chromosome complement informed reference genome for each tissue. SRY is predominantly expressed in the testis [ 5253 ] and typically one would expect SRY to show male-specific expression.

Abstract Background Human X and Y chromosomes share an evolutionary origin and, as a consequence, sequence similarity. This was repeated for the Ensembl and the gencode default and sex chromosome complement informed transcriptome quantification estimates. We further found different genes called as differentially expressed between the sexes and identified sex differences in gene pathways that were missed when samples were aligned to a default reference genome.
We quantified abundance using Salmon [ 34 ] in male and female brain cortex samples twice, once to a default reference transcriptome index that includes both the X and Y chromosome-linked non sex chromosomes are referred to as definition in Tempe and to a reference transcriptome index that is informed on the sex chromosome complement of the sample.
Female XX samples when aligned to a sex chromosome complement informed reference genome will show zero counts for Y-linked genes, but will still include those genes in the raw counts file.
Two major types of chromosomes can be found in eukaryotic cells. A temperature-dependent sex determination system is found in some reptiles. It means they autosomes are responsible for transferring the genetic information from parents to their offspring.
The length of the arms and the position of the centromere are the same in the chromosomes in the homologous pair. Khan Academy. Article Media.
No Y-linked transcript expression in female XX samples when quantification was estimated using a transcriptome index informed on the sex chromosome complement A pseudo-alignment shows similar effects of the reference to that of an alignment approach Fig.
