SOX9 has both conserved and novel roles in marsupial sexual differentiation

Pask, Andrew J; Harry, Jenny L; Graves, Jennifer; O'Neill, Rachel; Layfield, Sharon; Shaw, Geoffrey; Renfree, Marilyn B


In addition to an essential role in chondrogenesis, SOX9 is a highly conserved and integral part of the testis determining pathway in human and mouse. To determine whether SOX9 is involved in sex determination in noneutherian mammals we cloned a marsupial orthologue and studied its expression. The tammar wallaby SOX9 gene proved to be highly conserved, and maps to a region of the tammar genome syntenic to human chromosome 17. Marsupial SOX9 transcripts were detected by RT-PCR in the developing...[Show more]
