Abstract

The comparative lack of sexual dimorphism of apricot and other [sex-linked] genes studied is due to "sex-limitation", i.e., to a compensatory influence of the dosage difference between the sexes in respect to other genes in the X-chromosome. The facts are of particular interest from an evolutionary standpoint.
