National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Applying the Theory to Whole Animal Physiology Although there is ample evidence for effects of gonadal hormones that cause sexual differentiation, much of the theory articulated above has not been tested extensively. Cell-autonomous sex determination outside of the gonad.
In both cases, no studies have yet to manipulate sex chromosome complement and hormonal status at the same time, to begin to unravel the molecular mechanisms leading to the interactions. Keywords: testosterone, estradiol, X chromosome, Y chromosome.
The shift is experienced more by males, because of hemizygous exposure of the X allele. Views Read Edit View history. Cell-autonomous sex determination outside of the gonad. The genetic basis of XX-XY differences present before gonadal sex differentiation in the mouse.
Alberts, B. Wikimedia Commons Wikiquote. Female gametes are egg cells produced in vertebrates within the ovarieslarge immobile cells that contain the nutrients and cellular components necessary for a developing embryo. FlowerNet: a gene expression correlation network for anther and pollen development.
Induction of staminate flowers on gynoecious cucumbers with gibberellin A3. In birds, males often have a more colourful appearance and may have features like the long tail of male peacocks that would seem to put the organism at a disadvantage e.
Other Y genes have an inherently male function because they act on germ cells in a cell-autonomous fashion and are required for spermatogenesis, a male-specific function Burgoyne and Mitchell, In studies of songbirds, various examples were discovered in which the sexual phenotype of non-gonadal tissues, including the brain, did not correlate with the type of gonads, but did correlate with the type of sex chromosomes Agate et al.
Mitochondria, maternal inheritance, and male aging. Thus, Sry sets up lifelong sex differences in effects of gonadal hormones. General biological introduction. Sex determination and differentiation.
