Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Arthur Georges:

    We believe that after the master sex gene on the sex chromosomes does its work, a cascade of gene regulatory processes (those governing development) is initiated leading to a male or a female hatchling reptile, for the most part, these regulatory processes are buffered in some way from varying temperatures in the nest, but only to a point. At high temperatures, the control of the master sex genes is eroded, and temperature brings in its influence.
