In females, a single X chromosome is inactivated in each cell. Testosterone converts the mesonephric ducts into male accessory structures, including the epididymisvas deferensand seminal vesicle. They form granulosa cells which encircle the oocytes, blocked at the diplotene stage of the first meiosis.

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Nef S, Parada LF. The four last enzymes act exclusively in the alternate pathway of DHT synthesis. In the female, AMH begins to be produced in the second half of fetal life by granulosa cells of growing follicles Transcriptomic analysis of mRNA expression and alternative splicing during mouse sex determination.
For descriptions of chromosomes and the genes that they carry, see human genetics.
Journal List J Anat v. The fetus appears to be sexually indifferent, looking neither like a male or a female. The normal human fetus of either sex has the potential to develop either male or female organs, depending on genetic and hormonal influences.
First meiotic prophase in oogonia. In addition, the Wolffian ducts are stimulated by testosterone to eventually develop into the spermatic ducts ductus deferensejaculatory ducts, and seminal vesicles. This is because of the presence of the sex-determining region of the Y chromosome, also known as the SRY gene.
For Embryonic development in general, see Embryonic development. The testis cords orange containing the Sertoli cells and the germ cells which are arrested as T1 prospermatogonia until after birth later differentiate into seminiferous tubules which become hollow and actively produce spermatazoa during puberty.
During male embryonic development exposure to high levels of estrogen can lead to genital abnormalities. I have decided to take early retirement in September Several other experimental models impairing the expression of signaling molecules, which are expressed SRY in the early gonadal ridge in normal conditions, show reduced or absent SRY expression, develop gonadal agenesis and a female phenotype of the internal and external genitalia.
