Abundance of female-biased and paucity of male-biased genes on X. A: Comparisons of the fraction of female-biased and male-biased transcripts within the X-chromosome and between the X-chromosome and autosomes in six somatic tissues: kidney (Ki), liver (Li), lung (Lu), striatum (St), eye (Ey) and hippocampus (Hi). P-values for differences in frequencies; ns: not significant, *: p<0.01, **: p<0.001, ***: p<0.0001 (two-sided Fisher’s exact test). B: The relative overrepresentation of female-biased as compared to male-biased transcripts on the mouse X-chromosome is illustrated (X). Overrepresentation of female-biased transcripts on X mostly remained after exclusion of all known XCI escapee genes (X’). The data presented in A and B corresponds to probes selected at p<0.001 (two-sided Wilcoxon test).
