  • Psychomotor development is normal. (wikipedia.org)
  • In a normal situation, all the cells in an individual will have 46 chromosomes with one being an X and one a Y or with two Xs. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is because AMELY exists in the non-recombining region of chromosome Y, effectively isolating it from normal selection pressures. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is important that this process occurs otherwise a woman would produce twice the amount of normal X chromosome proteins. (wikipedia.org)
  • T3 appears to be critical for the normal formation and growth of nerve cells, as well as the development of junctions between nerve cells (synapses) where cell-to-cell communication occurs. (wikipedia.org)

  • assignment
  • thus, even after birth, sex assignment may not be accurate. (wikipedia.org)
  • Modern practices in intersex management have moved away from the presumption that infants should be subjected to sex assignment surgery by guesswork shortly after birth, and it is perceived to be more important for children to have the autonomy to match a surgical intervention to their chosen gender. (wikipedia.org)
  • In most of these patients, gender identity seemed to follow the sex of assignment and sex of rearing more closely than it did genes or hormones. (wikipedia.org)

  • Gender
  • Gender reveal parties may be problematic for expectant parents whose children's biological sex cannot accurately be assigned before birth, and can set the stage for future issues when the babies will not fit squarely into a pink or blue box. (wikipedia.org)
  • According to some[weasel words], gender identity should be seen as an "open-ended category" and should not depend entirely upon one's biological sex. (wikipedia.org)
  • The term "sex change" is sometimes also used for the whole process of changing gender role ("living as a woman" instead of living as a man, or vice versa), not limited to medical procedures. (wikipedia.org)
  • In response the authors suggested that while the amelogenin sex test may be accurate in general, other Y chromosome markers such as SRY, STR, or 50f2 can be used for less ambiguous gender identification. (wikipedia.org)
