The increasing obesity incidence worldwide and the fact that obesity can lead to secondary hypogonadism in young man, brings the need to evaluate new treatments to hypoandrogenism. The standard testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) ameliorates the metabolic parameters but can cause infertility, and its benefits regarding cardiovascular parameters such endothelial dysfunction are still ...
The embryo phenotypic sex is determined by the gonadal sex. The balance between the opposing pathways Fgf9/Sox9 and Wnt4/beta-catenin directs to a male or female fate during the sex determination and differentiation process. The expression of SRY and SOX9 is sufficient to induce testis development while the ovarian differentiation demands Wnt4/beta-catenin pathway activation. R-spondin ...
For the male sex definition there are two consecutive and complementary steps involved: the sexual determination and the sexual differentiation, which include all the processes that result in the male or female phenotype definition. Several genes are involved in these processes, like the SOX9, which is considered essential to the testicular differentiation and to the definition of the m...
