The androgen receptor gene is located on a highly conserved region of the X chromosomes of marsupial and monotreme as well as eutherian mammals

, : The androgen receptor gene is located on a highly conserved region of the X chromosomes of marsupial and monotreme as well as eutherian mammals. Journal of Heredity 82(2): 134-139

The androgen receptor gene (AR), which is located on the long arm of the human X chromosome, was mapped by somatic cell analysis and in situ hybridization in marsupial and monotreme species. Both methods demonstrated that it was located on the X chromosome in each marsupial species, and also in the platypus. We conclude that this gene is part of a highly conserved region of the mammalian X, represented by the human Xq, which formed part of the X chromosomes in a mammalian ancestor 150 million years ago. Since this gene is located proximally on the long arm of the monotreme X, which is G-band homologous to the Y and apparently exempt from X chromosome inactivation, the conservation of this region has evidently not depended on its isolation by X-Y differentiation or on X inactivation.
