Y chromosome : Genes Linked To Ageing And Lifespan Regulation
Researchers have discovered that the Y chromosome possesses genes linked to ageing and lifespan regulation.
- Researchers have discovered that the Y chromosome possesses genes that are vital to biological functions, including those linked to ageing and lifespan regulation.
- Genome sequences of the Neanderthals, an ancient relative of the modern human, harbour telltale signs of the replacement of the Y chromosome beginning from modern humans.
- The Y chromosome may have to relinquish its title of “master of maleness” to another chromosome in the times to come.
- In humans, in addition to the 22 pairs of chromosomes in each, we have a pair of sex chromosomes called X and Y.
