This phenomenon is called epistasis (from the Greek epi, over, and stasis, arrest, inhibition).

Cardiac striated muscle tissue

It has striated myocytes with one or two central nuclei. This tissue occurs only in the heart and presents contraction independent of the individual's will (involuntary contraction). In the heart muscle this contraction is vigorous and rhythmic. These muscle cells are smaller and branched, intimately joined together by specialized and typical structures of the cardiac musculature: the intercalated discs, which make the electrical connection between all the heart cells.

Gametogenesis

Gametogenesis is the process by which gametes are produced in organisms endowed with sexual reproduction. In animals, gametogenesis occurs in the gonads, organs that also produce sex hormones, which determine the characteristics that differentiate males from females. The fundamental event of gametogenesis is meiosis, which halves the amount of cell chromosomes, resulting in haploid cells.
