On the other hand, haploidy or doubled haploidy can also be achieved from the male gametophyte or its precursors through a pathway known as androgenesis. According to its initial definition, the concept "androgenesis" was invariably linked to "fertilization." It was originally coined to define a route involving sexual reproduction, egg fertilization, and subsequent inactivation of the female nucleus, so that a male-derived, haploid embryo is formed within the embryo sac (Rieger et al., 1968).

Although the hybrids between Lolium and Festuca species are usually male sterile with low female fertility (Jauhar, 1993), the androgenesis technique, which produces diploid offspring that carry nuclear chromosomes from only the male parent, was used to select and stabilize useful Lolium-Festuca gene combinations (Lesniewska et al., 2001; Thomas et al., 2003).
La glandula sebacea es exquisitamente sensible a pequenas elevaciones hormonales y estas dependen de la androgenesis (figura 1).1Los androgenos se producen en el estroma de los ovarios y en las glandulas suprarrenales, especialmente en la zona reticular a traves del metabolismo del colesterol (figura 2); esta produccion intraglandular esta determinada por el eje hipotalamo-hipofisiario, y corresponde a un 50% de la produccion total.
