Abstract

Turner syndrome is the phenotype associated with the absence of a second sex chromosome in humans. Recent observations support the hypothesis that the phenotype results from haploid dosage of genes that are common to the X and Y chromosomes and that escape X inactivation. A goal of current studies is the identification of these 'Turner' genes.
