Sex Chromosomes: Sex chromosomes determine the gender. The X chromosome, being larger, carries many more genes than does the Y. There are two types of chromosomes based on their function. Sex chromosome differences Decrease text size Default text size Increase text size.

Boys with Jacob's syndrome typically have no physical features with the exception that they may be taller than average. The Y chromosome has one long arm and a very short second arm. The X chromosome resembles a large autosomal chromosome with a long and a short arm.
Disorders of the sex chromosomes are also common. What is the difference between Autosomes and Sex Chromosomes? The characteristic feature of polytene chromosome is that along the length of the chromosome there is a series of dark bands alternate with clear zones called inter bands.
These chromosomes are abnormal chromosomes.
Each vertical bar shows the size of a subset identified in one or multiple comparisons. Chromosomes come in pairs and a normal human cell has 46 chromosomes: 22 pairs of autosomes and two sex chromosomes. Interestingly, several autosomal sDMRs identified by one of the packages Comt and Bcl6 or only one of the comparisons Ergic1 and Esr1 were confirmed by pyrosequencing as belonging to the sex-phenotype associated category Figure 3 a.
