Published online Jun Other features The maximum number of chromosomes in our genome are the autosomes. Autosomes 22 pairs are homologous in humans, whereas male sex chromosomes XY are non-homologouswhile female sex chromosomes XX are homologous.
Autosomal genetic disorders which exhibit Mendelian inheritance can be inherited either in an autosomal dominant or recessive fashion. Such chromosomes that play a vital role in determining the gender or sex of humans or other species of animals are known as sex chromosome.
For example, humans have a diploid genome that usually contains 22 pairs of autosomes and one allosome pair 46 chromosomes total.

The Book of Genesis tells us that Adam, the first human, was a man, and that Eve, the first woman, was created from one of Adam's ribs. Female offspring are produced by the mutation on SOX9 gene in humans. It would also be an advantage to reunite the two major components of the cell, nucleus and cytoplasm, and to understand their working as an integrated whole.
Like, the chromosomes 17 has the gene SOX9, that activates TDF transcription factor, this is essential in determining the male sex as this factor is encoded by the SRY gene found on the Y chromosome. Such chromosomes that play a vital role in determining the gender or sex of humans or other species of animals are known as sex chromosome.
Harris are two fascinating books describing the research that led to the discovery of spermatozoa and mammalian eggs. After Zeus cut them in half and Apollo healed their wounds, the two halves came together in mutual embraces.
