Homologous regions of the sex chromosomes behave like autosomes in that they undergo homologous pairing and recombination, and contain genes that escape X-inactivation. These genes are presumably required in dual dosage in both males and females.The aim of the study was to investigate the presence of Y-chromosome fragments in a population of 42 female Brazilian patients with TS from Mato Grosso state.

Research also discovered a new abnormality of the aorta, common in up to half of women with Turner syndrome. The abnormality, called elongated transverse arch of the aorta, appears to put women at risk for aortic complicationsNICHD also supports research on Turner syndrome through the Fertility and Infertility (FI) Branch. In addition, the FI Branch supports research on the genetics and epigenetics of reproduction. Much of this research has indirect implications for Turner syndrome.
