Father ’s X chromosome may yield clues to higher rates of autoimmune disease in women
UCLA scientists have discovered one reason why autoimmune diseases are more prevalent in women than in men. While males inherit their mother ’s X chromosome and father’s Y chromosome, females inherit X chromosomes from both parents. New research, which shows differences in how each of those X chromosomes is regulated, suggests that the X chromosome that females get from their father may help to explain their more active immune system .“It’s been known for many years that women are more susceptible to autoimmune diseases than men are,” said lead study author Dr. Rhonda Voskuhl, a UCLA professor...
