The male gonad is the testis (pl, testes).. The initial difference in male and female gonad development are dependent on testis-determining factor (TDF) the protein product of the Y chromosome SRY gene. Recent studies have indicated that additional factors may also be required for full differentiation. This banner text can have markup.. web; books; video; audio; software; images; Toggle navigation.

  Abstract. Testicular development is a very interesting aspect of male reproduction and fertility. The primordial germ cells migrate from yolk sac to the genital ridge along the wall of the hindgut and the dorsal mesentery to ultimately settle in the genital ridge that would give rise to : Pranav Patni, Sujit Kumar Mohanty, Rajender Singh. In mammals, the primary step in male sex determination is the initiation of testis development which depends on the expression of the Y-linked testis determining gene, Sry. The mechanisms by which. The development of the gonads is part of the prenatal development of the reproductive system and ultimately forms the testes in males and the ovaries in females. The gonads initially develop from the mesothelial layer of the peritoneum.. The ovary is differentiated into a central part, the medulla, covered by a surface layer, the germinal immature ova originate from cells from.

  Two major functions of the mammalian ovary are the production of germ cells (oocytes), which allow continuation of the species, and the generation of bioactive molecules, primarily steroids (mainly estrogens and progestins) and peptide growth factors, which are critical for ovarian function, regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, and development of secondary sex by: Retinoic acid (RA), a derivative of vitamin A, is critical for the production of oocytes and sperm in mammals. These gametes derive from primordial germ cells, which colonize the nascent gonad, and later undertake sexual differentiation to produce oocytes or sperm. During fetal development, germ cells in the ovary initiate meiosis in response to RA, whereas those in the testis do not yet Cited by: 1. the descent of the testes begins as early as week __. The superior part of the embryonic gonad degenerates and its inferior part migrates downward, guided by the ___. In the __ month, the testes abruptly pass through the inguinal canals into the scrotum. VII Sexual Development. The mammalian embryo will develop as a female if it possesses ovaries or in the total absence of gonads. It is the role of the embryonic testis to impose male sexual development on this basic female body plan. It does this by producing at least three diffusible factors that establish the differentiation of male-specific.
