Development of the sexually dimorphic larynx in African clawed frogs is controlled by secretion of androgenic steroids (D. Sassoon and D. Kelley, 1986, Amer. J. Anat. 177, 457-472). Adult laryngeal muscle shows high levels of androgen binding relative to other skeletal muscles and binding activity in males is three times that in females (N. Segil, L. Silverman, and D. Kelley, 1987, Gen. Comp. Endocrinol. 66, 95-101). To determine when androgen sensitivity and sex differences arise, we assayed… CONTINUE READING
