Most mammalian species have heteromorphic sex chromosomes and specific sex-determining genetic factors, except a few enigmatic groups such as the mole voles Ellobius. So far, nobody knows which mechanisms determine the development of males in these rodents lacking Y chromosome (X0♂/X0♀ and XX♂/XX♀) and Sry gene. Five mole vole species demonstrate the ability to establish diverse meiotic mechanisms for overcoming evolutionary deadlocks.
