In female fetuses the Booroola gene (FecB(B)) is known to affect germ cell development and consequently the pattern of ovarian follicular growth during fetal and post-natal life. However in males, the role of this gene during fetal development is unknown. The aims of the study reported here were to examine the effects of the FecB(B) gene on development of male fetuses with respect to body and organ mass for example, pituitary gland, adrenal and mesonephros), testes development, including… CONTINUE READING
