Mammalian SD is a balance of mutually antagonistic pathways
Our data on the role of nuclear receptors in human ovarian development and the repression of WNT signaling during mammalian testis formation suggests the main function of pro-testis genes may be to antagonize pro-ovary […]
Control of expression of the human testis-determining gene SRY.
Cell fate decisions requiring appropriate transcriptional regulation key genes. SRY is pivotal in mammalian SD but how the expression of SRY is regulated in mammals is unknown. We identified a family from central India […]

Identification of key components of the human sex-determination pathway. The DSD exome/genome project.
Disorders/differences in Sex Development (DSD) are defined as congenital conditions with discordant development of chromosomal and gonadal/anatomical sex and cover a wide range of phenotypes that involve the endocrine and reproductive systems. In the […]
The role of the ribosome biogenesis factor DHX37 in vertebrate sex-determination.
The identification of variants in DHX37 as a cause of 46,XY DSD opens up the possibility that some forms of human sex-reversal are ribosomopathies. Pathogenic variants associated with a lack of testis-determination or, the […]
