This system has previously been thought to be involved in schizophrenia as well as other disorders y chromosome sex linked genes in Trois-Rivieres 405455 ]. Reprod Fertil Dev — This contrasts with the expression of all autosome loci from both alleles in nearly all cells.
Studies have shown a male-specific haplotype associated with psychosis and polymorphisms that have been associated with psychotic symptoms, such as delusions [ 35363738 ]. Rutter, M. Coordinate Control of Sex Chromosome Activity We observed that adjacent genes were always expressed from the same Za chromosome in male chicken cells.
It has received the most attention for having specific genes underlying the X-linked inherited intellectual disabilities, but has also been associated with schizophrenia in a number of early studies. Lines represent loci analyzed in this study and in Deakin et al.

At least cells were scored for each hybridization. Systematic resequencing of X-chromosome synaptic genes in autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia. They are part of a small class of genes that have homologies on both X and Y. The marsupial X, though homologous to the eutherian XCR, displays a pattern of expression similar to the eutherian XAR, monotreme Xs and bird Z, suggesting that changes to the regulation of the eutherian XCR occurred after the divergence of marsupials from eutherian mammals million years ago.
The same authors have compared neural gene expression in the two sets of monosomic mice by y chromosome sex linked genes in Trois-Rivieres analysis to reveal a potentially maternally expressed X-linked imprinted candidate gene, the characterisation of which is ongoing
Some new information about possible risk loci on these chromosomes has come from the current large genetic consortia genome-wide association studies, suggesting that perhaps this hypothesis needs to be revisited for some schizophrenias. Crow and colleagues later expanded the X chromosome hypothesis to include the possibility of a locus on the Y chromosome and, specifically, genes on X that escaped inactivation and are X-Y homologous loci.
This is consistent with the different epigenetic profiles displayed by the marsupial X and the eutherian XCR  ,  , . Neither of these studies has yet been replicated in other populations.
