The acquisition of sexually antagonistic alleles, alleles that benefit one sex and are detrimental to the other, favors the fixation of mutational events that suppress recombination in the vicinity of the sex-determining locus 78. When cells progress to diplotene, RAD51 starts to disappear from male sex chromosomes, suggesting that the DNA breaks are repaired.

It has been suggested that a majority of salamanders have homomorphic sex chromosomes 1820however, evidence for genetic sex determination in most species is largely based on the observation of sex ratios from clutches without thorough demonstration of Mendelian inheritance.
Abstract During meiotic prophase, DNA double-strand break DSB repair-mediated homologous recombination HR occurs for exchange of genetic information between homologous chromosomes. Studies over the past decade have gradually uncovered how DSBs are repaired and how crossovers are generated in male sex chromosomes.
They allow for the recombination and random segregation of genetic material from the mother and father into new cells. Cunningham, F. Evolution 50—
Read mapping was used to assess the specificity of the laser capture, amplified library of the sex chromosome dyad. Recent analyses of gene knockout mice have provided important information on the regulation of DNA damage response in the XY body Fig 3B.

Earlier two sets of chromosomes were present, but now each set exists in two different daughter cells that have arisen from the single diploid parent cell by meiosis I daughter cells resulting from meiosis I undergo another cell division in meiosis II but without another round of chromosomal replication.
