Abstract

Recombinant deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) technology has had a major impact during the last decade on the field of biology. Advances in molecular biology have provided new tools to investigate poorly understood disorders of reproduction, yielding new insights into the etiology of recurrent pregnancy loss and intersex syndromes. Gene cloning has allowed the characterization and expression of genes coding for various hormones, with a potential for improved diagnosis and treatment of reproductive dysfunctions. Understanding the basis for this new technology will allow the clinician to use the resulting diagnostic and therapeutic techniques to his patient's benefit.
