Prognostic significance of FOXL2 mutation and mRNA expression in adult and juvenile granulosa cell tumors of the ovary.
Dax and Foxl2 are female-biased genes, their expression profiles show similar trends to Cyp19A in ovary, but downwards trend in testis.
Identification of novel mutations in FOXL2 associated with premature ovarian failure.
Molecular studies proposed that FOXL2 and RSPO1 might be ovary-determining factors since their expressions were detected in the developing ovary [38, 39].

Within this cascade, several genes are key in determining gender because the major gene SRY carried by the Y chromosome is a initiator of the early stages of testicular determinism in mammals, or the FOXL2 and SOX9 genes that are crucial to ovarian and male differentiation, respectively (Koopman & Loftier 2003, Ottolenghi et al.
Previous research has shown that removing a gene, called Foxl2, in ovaries caused female cells to become male cells and the ovaries to become more like testes.

To achieve this combination of technical sensitivity and specificity, we optimized qPCR assays selected from the tissue studies that used the HM technology [TUSC3, tumor suppressor candidate 3; TMEFF2; ZDHHC22, zinc finger, DHHC-type containing 22; VTN; FOXL2, forkhead box L2; NGFR; ALX4, aristaless-like homeobox 4; SIX6, SIX homeobox 6; EYA4; and SEPT9] (14).
