Bardoni and her colleagues proposed that this region contains a gene for a protein that competes with the SRY factor and that is important in directing the development of the ovary. Some species, however, have no sex-determination system. Figure 5.
Current Biology. However, it does not directly masculinize the male urethra, prostate, penis, or scrotum. Testosterone- and dihydrotestosterone-dependent regions of the human male genital system. At this time, the united mammalian line was separated in two others, namely the marsupial and placental lines.
Germ cells not involved in primary sex determination, because mutants where germ cells do not migrate into gonads, or mutants without germ cells still differentiate female or male gonads. These species' sex chromosomes are relatively primitive and unspecialized.

BMC Biology. PLOS Biology. Main article: X0 sex-determination system. Little is known about the genetic basis of sex determination in vertebrates though considerable progress has been made in recent years.
Postulated cascades leading to the formation of the sexual phenotypes in mammals. However, we have yet to decipher which of the two Z or W is responsible for the choice between males and females. DMRT1 has been been shown to be particularly important for sex determination in the teleost medaka, Oryzias latipes.
The hormone binds androgen receptors which function as transcription factors. Figure 5.
This, however, does not give the complete sexual phenotype. Thus, in evolutionary lower mammals with a more conserved chromosomal content, such as monotremes, X and Y retain homology in all their length but for the SRY region.
Search term. The gene is absent in a female XX littermate. Such a discovery would bear great implications for comparative biology studies and might also allow important applications in the field of reproductive endocrinology.
