Unlike the mesodermal seminal vesicles, at approximately 10 weeks, the prostate and bulbourethral glands develop from the urogenital sinus as a branching outgrowth of endodermal glandular epithelium into the surrounding mesenchyme (Fig. 2c). In prostate tissue, testosterone is converted by 5a-reductase to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which binds to the mesenchymal androgen receptors with an exceptionally high affinity and is the principal androgen driving gland development. Bidirectional interactions between mesenchyme and epithelium then allow development of the smooth muscle and glandular tissue of the prostate.
