gene function and orthology

The dm-w gene is involved in sex determination in amphibians, and is related to (thus is a paralog of) the DMRT1 gene family which are sex determining genes in reptiles.

Hayashi et al 2023, Promoter generation for the chimeric sex-determining gene dm-W in Xenopus frogs, also concur, that there is no dm-w in X. tropicalis: [[1]]
