Slide 4 Slide 5 Each cell in the XX embryo independently and randomly inactivates one of the two X chromosomes in the cell; the mitotic descendants of this cell maintain the inactive state of the X (i.e., if one X in an XX cell is inactivated, the each of the two daughter cells arising by mitosis from that cell also have the same X inactivated). "Inactivation" here refers to transcription: we say that one of the X chromosomes is "inactivated" because most of the genes on that copy of the X chromosomes have been turned off. The genes haven't been damaged as part of the inactivation; they are just prevented from being transcribed. Cells of the germline re-activate the inactive X prior to meiosis so that the gametes don't get inactive X chromosomes. (Note: As discussed briefly in class, there are exceptions; some genes on the inactive X are known to escape inactivation. And, in some cases the inactivation is not random but shows a preference for the maternally or the paternally derived X.)
