We describe the mechanisms by which luteinizing hormone promotes the production of testosterone, a hormone essential for spermatogenesis. The utility of this technique for transcriptome-wide screening of relative expression levels was compared to two alternative methodologies for production of labelled cDNA target, namely incorporation of fluorescent nucleotides by reverse transcriptase or the Klenow fragment.
Male reproductive tract development, however, remains largely unaffected in the absence of Dicer1. Exposures that occur during prepuberty, such as chemotherapy treatment for cancer during childhood, may also affect future fertility.

Each original chromosome and its copy are joined together at the centromere and are called sister chromatids. What is the difference in math terms? If sex cells, like sperm and egg, have the same number of chromosomes as regular body cells, then each time they combined, the progeny would have twice the number of chromosomes.
He also showed that although chromosomes may look similar, they have specific hereditary qualities. Such mechanisms likely include elevated levels of DNA repair enzymes that ameliorate most potentially mutagenic DNA damages.
Genes located on the X chromosome are called X-linked genes, and these genes determine X sex-linked traits.

We report that Gata-2 is expressed in a sexually dimorphic fashion during mouse gonadogenesis. Furthermore, the paracrine functions of testis-derived hormones, including estrogen as well as activin and inhibin, are discussed.

Here, we describe a novel gene potentially functioning in this pathway using a cDNA microarray screen for genes exhibiting sexually dimorphic expression during murine gonad development. In response to hormone binding the androgen receptor protein positively or negatively regulates gene expression classical pathway or signaling cascade activity nonclassical pathway in target tissues.
The potential of expression analysis using cDNA microarrays to address complex problems in a wide variety of biological contexts is now being realised.
