Distance (d) to nearest MSL binding site for X-linked genes
Number of reads with:
Expression Genes Median d (bp) d = 0 bp (%) d < 3 kb (%) d < 10 kb (%)
Male-biased 39 157* 19 (49) 31 (79)** 35 (90)**
Female-biased 13 4,795** 1 (8) 5 (38) 7 (62)
Unbiased 2,089 1,593 771 (37) 1,164 (56) 1,446 (69)

Differences in d between male-biased (or female-biased) and unbiased genes were tested by a Wilcoxon test. Differences in the proportion of genes in each category were tested by Fisher’s exact test. *P < 0.01, **P < 0.001.
