The bipotential more Sf1 appears to be active in masculinizing both the Leydig and the Sertoli cells. Their Y chromosomes were normal, but they had a duplication of a small portion of the short arm of the X chromosome. Individuals who are born with the short arm but not the long arm of the Y chromosome are male, while individuals born with the long arm of the Y chromosome but not the short arm are female.

Individuals having only one functional copy of this gene have a syndrome called campomelic dysplasia, a disease involving numerous skeletal and organ systems. The male, being XY, can generate two types of sperm: half bear the X chromosome, half the Y. This absorption of water is regulated by estrogen.
Population genetics of partial male-sterility and the evolution of monoecy and dioecy. Plant sex determination and sex chromosomes. Most of the presentations and slideshows on PowerShow. The protein sequences of both the Y- and X-linked genes have therefore been maintained for at least most of their evolutionary history since the X and Y ceased recombining, ie these Y-linked genes have not degenerated.
After you enable Flash, refresh this page and the presentation should play. Most current understanding of how the distinctive properties of Y chromosomes evolved comes from theoretical work on the evolution of genomic regions with low recombination.
In Drosophila only female has crossing over, other organisms have both sexes
After Imperato-McGinley et al. Testosterone and dihydrotestosterone Although testosterone is one of the two primary masculinizing hormones, there is evidence that it might not be the active masculinizing hormone in certain tissues.
The gonadal rudiments are paired regions of the intermediate mesoderm; they form adjacent to the developing kidneys.
