Female cells randomly and permanently shut off one of the X chromosomes during embryonic development through a process called X chromosome inactivation, or XCI. Just how XCI occurs has remained unclear -- until now. New research performed on mouse female embryonic stem cells traces the origin of XCI to an RNA splicing mechanism.
