Abstract

The androgen content was measured in testes from 34 male and in ovaries from 30 female embryos that varied in age from less than 12 to approximately 20 weeks. The 5α-reduced androgens dihydrotestosterone and 3α-androstanediol were found in testes at a level of about a 30th of that of testosterone at all ages examined, whereas very little or no testosterone, androstenedione, or either of the 5α-reduced androgens were detected in the ovaries. Where dihydrotestosterone plays a role in the development of the testes is unknown.
