Statistical difference between male and female data points shown in Figure 1. P values (from t-tests) are listed for all data points shown in the normal expression profiles for SOX9, AMH, FGF9, FOXL2, FST, RSPO1, WNT4. Gene name is given in the top left hand corner of each data set. Column 2 shows the stage of development; d = day of gestation, D = postnatal day. Column 3 shows the P value from a two tailed, homoscedastic t-test (conducted in Microsoft Excel). Significant values (P ≤ 0.05) are highlighted in yellow. The bottom row (combined M (male) v F (female)) shows the P values for the entire male versus female data set combined across the time period shown. SOX9, AMH, FOXL2 and FST showed the greatest difference between testes and ovaries. WNT4 was significantly higher in females than males over the entire period examined, but was not significantly higher at any given time point.
