Thereafter, the X:A ratio provides a signal that directs sexual fate and does so by binding competitively the promoter of the sex-determination switch gene xol-1 with X-signal elements (XSE = several genes located on the X-chromosome that are expressed early) and autosomal-signal elements (=genes located on autosomes also expressed early).
To summarize, most of the patients previously described had translocations between the X chromosome and autosomes 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18.
In Ectadia, similarly to phaneropterids in another genus of the tribe Elimaeini, Elimaea, and in the related Ducetia, the ancestral chromosome number is reduced to 2n=29 (X0), including one tandem fusion between two pairs of autosomes, all chromosomes being acrocentric (e.
Potential paralogous contigs located on either chromosome 18 or chromosome 21 (target chromosomes) and alternative autosomes (reference chromosomes) were identified by sampling each target chromosome at 10-bp intervals in 100-bp segments.

Because the present study was performed on autosomes only, we cannot rule out genetic differences between strains on the sex chromosomes related to the regulation of sex factors on Pprc1.
Such a size difference between sex chromosomes and autosomes is unusual in Lepidoptera, and was described in detail only in some species of the family Tortricidae (Sichova et al.
The large Y chromosome in both species likely represents centric fusion between an autosome and a morphologically cryptic Y chromosome, giving rise to a situation of multiple sex chromosomes: [X.
