It is proposed that the wild-type xol-1 gene product of Caenorhabditis elegans promotes male development by ensuring that genes (or gene products) directing hermaphrodite sex determination and dosage compensation are inactive XO animals. In addition to feminizing XO animals, xol-1 mutations further masculinize XX animals already partially masculinized..
