  3. I. Sexual differentiation and formation of genitalia 1. Sexual Differentiation 性别的分化 • Sexual differentiation is determined at three levels: chromosomes, gonads, and phenotype. • Males have XY and females have XX chromosomes. • Female characteristics develop spontaneously in the absence of the Y chromosome. • Y chromosome contains the gene-sex-determining region (SRY)-that is necessary for the development of male characteristics. • Gonads are composed of three cell types in both males and females: supporting cells (Sertoli or granulosa cells); stomal cells (Leydig or theca cells); and germ cells (spermatogonia or oocytes). • Fetal testes secrete two hormones-antimullerian hormone and testosterone-that are essential for development of the male gonads and internal genitalia; in their absence female gonads and internal genitalia develop. • Dihydrotestosterone is responsible for development of male external genitalia.

  8. Origin of mammalian life

  9. Puberty 青春期 • Onset of puberty is marked by pulsatile secretion of GnRH, FSH, and LH (female, age of 6-8 years and male, age of 9-10 years). • In the male, FSH stimulates sperm and Sertoli cell development while LH stimulates Leydig cell proliferation and testosterone secretion. • In the female, FSH stimulates follicle development and, along with LH, the synthesis of estradiol. • Testosterone and estradiol stimulate the development of secondary sex characteristics and a growth spurt in the male and female, respectively.

  10. Male reproductive system: function and regulation • Testes are composed of seminiferous tubules that produce sperm and Leydig cells, which produce testosterone. • Spermatogenesis results from conversion of spermatogonia to mature sperm through mitosis, meiosis, and differentiation. • Sertoli cells of the seminiferous tubules support sperm development as well as surround and isolate developing sperm from the blood supply. • Leydig cells, under the influence of LH, secrete testosterone. • FSH and testosterone acting through Sertoli cells enable spermatogenesis. • Blood levels of testosterone and inhibin feed back to regulate pituitary release of FSH and LH.

  21. III. Female reproductive system: function and regulation • Ovary has three regions: cortex composed of follicles; medulla composed of stromal and hormone-producing cells; and hilum, the point of entry of blood vessels and nerves. • Follicles are composed of three cell types: oocytes, granulosa, thecal. • Initial development of oocytes beings in fetal life, but maturation is delayed until puberty when single oocytes mature and are released monthly for the next 4 decades. • Progesterone and estradiol are main steroid hormones produced by the ovaries –estradiol from granulosa cells and progesterone from many cell types. • Estradiol is released prior to ovulation, progesterone after ovulation; both prepare the uterus for egg implantation. • FSH stimulates monthly development of follicles, LH stimulates monthly ovulation, and both stimulate synthesis and secretion of progesterone and estradiol. • Corpus luteum, the postovulation follicle, secretes estradiol and progesterone to sustain the egg and uterus if fertilization and implantation occur.

  32. Various sexual hormones changes in late luteal phase

  33. Mechanism of menstrual cycle induced by the changes in various sexual hormone * Endometrium

  34. Pregnancy and parturition1. Pregnancy • Fertilization of the oocyte occurs within 24 hours of ovulation in the distal end of the oviduct. • Fertilized egg completes second meiosis and divides repeatedly to form multicelled blastocyst. • Blastocyst implants in uterine wall within 5 days of ovulation. • After implantation, blastocyst secretes human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG, within 9 days of ovulation), which signals the corpus luteum to continue secreting progesterone and estradiol and is basis of the pregnancy test. • Progesterone is produced from cholesterol by the placenta and estriol through the interaction of the placenta and fetal adrenal cortex and liver. • Progesterone and estriol support development of the fetus as well as maternal breast development. • The mechanism by which parturition is initiated is unclear but involves an interplay between progesterone, prostaglandins, and oxytocin that increase the frequency of uterine contraction.

  48. V. Mechanism of milk secretion1.Anatomy of breast 乳房的解剖 Progesterone and estrogen stimulate the development and growth of the mother’s breasts. Estrogen also stimulates prolactin secretion by the anterior pituitary, which participates in breast development. At parturition, the breasts are ready for milk production and release induced by increased prolactin and oxytocin levels brought on by suckling.
