題目 哺乳動物の生殖細胞・体細胞の性を制御するシグナルネットワーク
Signaling networks regulating somatic and germ cell sex in mammals
Peter Koopman 教授 (Inst Mol Biosci&s_comma; Uni QLD&s_comma; AUSTRALIA)

In mammals&s_comma; Sry(sex-determining region Y gene) is the master regulator of male sex determination. Intriguingly&s_comma; the mechanisms by which it mediates its developmental functions are still elusive&s_comma; but it appears that Sryfunction and hence the mechanisms controlling male sexual development are fragile&s_comma; a situation that has profound biological&s_comma;medical and evolutionary implications. In this seminar&s_comma; the signalling
pathways initiated by Sryto promote testis development and ensure proper specification of germ cell fate are discussed. In particular&s_comma;
our recent discoveries relating to control of germ cell fate by retinoic acid signalling are presented.
