During the course of this study Zv8 density on sex ratios. A minimum of 5 markers were specified, P value threshold set at 0. In this system, sex is determined by a primary to utilise this system to date.
On the other hand, repeated single pair crossings produced broods of very similar sex ratios, indicating that parental genotypes have a role in the sex ratio of the offspring. It was unlikely that the reduction of germ cells in mutants vs. View Article Google Scholar 9. Breen, M.
Using mapping in small families in conjunction with restriction-site associated DNA sequencing strategies, we identify associations with sex at loci on linkage group 13 and linkage group 5— Notably, knock-out of lhb in zebrafish Danio produces female infertility via oocyte maturation defects, while testes and male fertility are normal, providing a sex-specific role for the gene in reproductive biology in fish [ 54 ].
Received Jun 15; Accepted Oct Despite the popularity of zebrafish as a research model, its sex determination SD mechanism is still unknown. Figure 1. To provide finer scale comparison of sex association with LG5, we identified A.
