Answer . xx is girl xy is boy
An xx and an xy cell are used to denote female and male zygoticcells, respectively. They are formed from the union of a female xegg and a male x or y sperm.
There are 22 autosomal chromosomes and 2 sex chromosomes in humans. In all the other chromosomes, the homologous pairs match up genetic loci. However, in human sex chromosomes… the X and Y chromosome are different (with the X chromosome being much larger and the Y chromosome carrying genes that cause "maleness"). Someone with an X and a Y chromosome is a male because he has a Y chromosome that carries the genes that code for "maleness". Females "lack" this Y chromosome, and thus show characteristic female phenotypes.
First of all, you're mistaken if you asked yourself this question:XX is the female sex chromosome combination, and XY is male. It's important to realise that this is the case… in humans, but notin all animals. Other animals, for example insects, have differentmechanisms for sex determination. In humans, a fertilised egg cell will divide a few times. Then eachcell will turn off all but one of its X chromosomes (the phrasingis because in rare cases a fertilized egg can end up with three ormore X chromosomes). This is possible and necessary because one Xis sufficient to produce the proteins encoded on it, hence twoactive X would result in twice the amounts needed. If you now wondered whether an embryo can also survive and grow toadulthood with only one X and no other sex chromosomes, you arecorrect. This is called monosomy X and causes a condition known asTurner syndrome. Any human with only X chromosomes will be female. The Y chromosome,which is much smaller than the X chromosome, carries someadditional genes whose influence will set off several mechanismswhich ultimately lead to the development as a male instead. A Ychromosome alone cannot sustain life as it does not contain many ofthe vital genes which are located on the X chromosome.
XX are the sex defining chromosomes for a girl and XY for boys
A female is an XX. However, during development one of the X chromosomes is deactivated and is called a Barr body. . Human females have XX sex chromosomes. A male has XY ch…romosomes. The Y chromosome is very small and contains only genes that make a male a male. .
Men are XY.
XX and XY is the male-female cross in humans and some other organisms. XX= female, XY= male..
Females' eggs always provide an X. If the sperm is X, the child is female (XX); if it is Y, the child is male (XY)..
this means that the same genetic code that is used in humans is used in all other types of organisms as well. anything from animals to plants to bacteria uses the same system …of triplet nucleotide bases (codons) to code for a single amino acid when building a polypeptide. remember that the genetic code is also degenerate- each codon only codes for one amino acid, but there can be several different codons that call for the same amino acid.
it means that they checked the knife and everything about it twice. So it should never have any mistakes. It turned into the logo for case knives today.
XX are the female chromosomes and XY are the male chromosomes.
