In many animals and plants, sex chromosomes show marked differences both in structural and genetic terms. This is related to the fact that these chromosomes have lost the ability to recombine over part of their length. This is particularly the case in the human species between the X chromosome and the Y chromosome whose size is considerably reduced.
