Br J Psychiatry ; —6. Cognitive and perceptual functions of the visual thalamus. Northern blot technique is often used to measure the expression of a gene for which a specific cDNA is available for use as a probe.
The male gametes, or sperm cells, in humans and other mammals are heterogametic and contain one of two types of sex chromosomes. It turns out that the sex determination pathway is probably more complicated and SRY may in fact inhibit some anti-male genes.

Journal of Systematics and Evolution. Related Articles. Genetic disorders determined by X genes are called X linked diseases. Adult males lack the Y sex chromosome that humans have and have only an X chromosome.
Genes that are found on the X chromosome are called X-linked genes. If the sperm cell contains a Y chromosome, then the resulting zygote will be XY, or male. An example of an X-linked gene is red-green colorblindness in humans.
The contents of these granules are discharged from the cell in the presence of infected cells, tumour cells, etc. Over a lifetime, the body will produce thousands of different antibodies to the range of antigens it encounters.
