Homeotic genes and inheritance

Post by Aerlinn » Mon Oct 23, 2006 11:08 am

How do homeotic genes work? ... in terms of signal transduction and everything?
Also, I heard that males 'inherit more' from their mother because they also inherit their X chromosome from their mother. That doesn't make sense to me, since females also inherit an X chromosome from their mother. Can anyone make sense of that?
Help would be nice ;)

to understand homeotic genes, read a book in developmental biology. 'Principles of Development' by Wolperts et al is a very good book about the basics of understanding developmental biology, inclusive the genetic basis of development.

Ok, I might look for that some time in the future =) But right now, I just needed a short description or something just to have an idea about it.
