For example, an X gene that is silenced when inherited from the mother will be expressed higher in XX than XY, but a gene silenced when inherited from the father will be expressed higher in XY than XX tissues. Sexual conflict because of sex-biased inheritance of mitochondrial DNA Sex-biased evolutionary forces may produce a loss of viability atypical sex differentiation in human in Klerington in the two sexes.
Differentiation between the sexes exists, therefore, as the primary difference represented by the distinction between eggs and sperm, by differences represented by nature of the reproductive glands and their associated structures, and lastly by differences, if any, between individuals possessing the male and female reproductive….
The category of atypical sex differentiation in human in Klerington DSD includes virilized females such as girls with a virilizing congenital adrenal hyperplasia and girls with aberrant ovarian development. The intersection of arrows is intended to evoke the idea that sex-biasing factors can interact, either by augmenting or opposing each other within specific cells, or by acting on different cells that each contribute to sex differences in the phenotype.

For example, offspring who were exposed in utero to maternal famine during the first trimester of development had higher total cholesterol and low-density lipid cholesterol levels and a higher ratio of low-density lipid to atypical sex differentiation in human in Klerington lipid cholesterol levels, all of which are risk factors for heart disease Roseboom et al.

This could cause a sex difference in the expression of the imprinted gene in either direction Babak et al. An egg that has been fertilized has a full complement of 46 chromosomes, of which two are sex chromosomes.
