Ana M. ESD has been well studied in reptiles like crocodiles and turtles Valenzuela and Lance, Indeed, in the most investigated fish groups at least two major genes or genomic regions related to SD have been reported in the same species: within tilapiinid, two major male and female determinant genes on LG1 and LG3, respectively, Cnaani et al.
Genome Res. Dmrt1 and doublesex gene sequences obtained from GenBank and the expressed partial cDNA sequence isolated from Austrolebias charrua. In most fish groups analyzed, these SD regions demonstrated to be non-homologous Piferrer et al.
Different sox17 transcripts during sex differentiation in sea bass, Dicentrarchus labrax. The availability of a genetic marker closely linked to the SDg has enabled assessment of the genotypic sex of fish just after 4—6 months when a fin clip can be obtained without damage, thus saving a minimum of 5 years for the production of all-female progenies.
Microarrays have been used as a powerful tool for assessing gene expression profiles along GD Gardner et al. BMC Evol Biol. Support Center Support Center. This model, although has been demonstrated in some fish, shows a large variation on its progression, genetic sex determination in fish in Truro is reflected on the degree of differentiation between the chromosomes of the sexual pair.
