This news item is about: Researchers at Baker Institute for Animal Health have identified a genetic variant linked to XX disorder of sex development (XX DSD), a rare genetic disorder that causes dogs with female chromosomes to develop testes and masculinized genitals. The discovery is a first step in developing a test to identify purebred dogs that carry the variant, helping breeders avoid producing affected dogs.
