SummarySex reversed mice heterozygous for the X-linked Tfm mutation are mosaics with respect to the Tfm locus. In the androgen-dependent striated urethral muscle, nuclei coding for the intact testosterone receptor protein and nuclei coding for the defective Tfm receptor protein are incorporated in the same multinucleate muscle fibres. The intact testosterone receptor complex can thus be expected to enter the Tfm nuclei. Our measurements show that the fibre diameters of the mosaic muscle form a… Expand
