[Testicular feminization syndrome associated with acute hydramnios: apropos of 1 case].
 

Author(s): M Jemmali, J C Recktenwald

Journal: J Gynecol Obstet Biol Reprod (Paris). 2000 Dec;29(8):797-800.

 

We describe the first, to our knowledge, case of a feminizing testicle associated with acute polyhydramniosis observed at 21 weeks 3 days gestation. There was no fetal malformation or maternal disease that would explain the polyhydramnios. Prenatal diagnosis of feminizing testicle ...

The role of androgen receptors in the masculinization of brain and behavior: what we've learned from the testicular feminization mutation.
 

Author(s): Damian G Zuloaga, David A Puts, Cynthia L Jordan, S Marc Breedlove

Journal: Horm Behav. 2008 May;53(5):613-26.

 

Many studies demonstrate that exposure to testicular steroids such as testosterone early in life masculinizes the developing brain, leading to permanent changes in behavior. Traditionally, masculinization of the rodent brain is believed to depend on estrogen receptors (ERs) and not ...
