Transient expression of SOX9 protein during follicular development in the adult mouse ovary.


SOX9 is an essential activating transcription factor that plays a critical role in Sertoli cell differentiation and subsequent testis cord formation. Cytoplasmic SOX9 is present in both sexes during early gonadal embryogenesis. While in males the protein is later translocated into the nucleus of pre-Sertoli cells, its expression is rapidly turned off in… (More)
