An obvious explanation is that the DNA in the lyonized X chromosome is methylated, where as the DNA in the active, X chromosome is not.

To check this hypothesis Peter Jones and Lawrence Shapiro grew cells in the presence of drug 5-azacytosine, which prevents DNA methylation.

This reactivated the lyonized the X chromosome.

Furthermore, Shapiro showed these reactivated chromosomes could be transferred to other cells and still remain active.
