Transcript levels of selected histone variants in female versus male gonads. qRT-PCR data is shown as the ratio of testes to ovary transcript levels (y-axis) on a logarithmic scale. Several histone variant transcripts were enriched >5000 fold in testes: H2Bt.2, H2Asq. 1, H1t, H3t.2, H4t, H2At.3, and H2Asq.2.
