Bacterial NTR is an enzyme that can convert the innocuous prodrug MTZ to a cytotoxic product, which induces cell death [ 14 ]. A QTL screening performed with homogeneously distributed microsatellites identified a major SD region in the proximal region of LG5 between two markers separated by Although major genes are involved in SD of many fish species, available data suggest that SD studies and their applications for fish aquaculture should emphasize the complex nature of this trait and thus, using appropriate quantitative genetics tools for its study.
However, a polygenic sex determining system Vandeputte et al.
By using whole trunks we made sure that we did have testis tissue in our samples starting from the onset of gonad formation. References and show that commitment to testis or ovary fate is actively maintained in the adult mouse.
This is an outstanding review of the literature on sex-reversing fish. These females — genetic females and sex-reversed genotypic males — were then crossed to untreated genotypic males. In contrast to wnt4Bwe could identify only one small conserved block upstream of wt1A. Kuroki, S.
Gynandromorphs Animals with both male and female phenotypic characteristics, often distributed bilaterally. Female development in mammals is regulated by Wnt-4 signaling.

It is interesting to note that the inheritance pattern of Omy7INRA in apparent XY-female families revealed both female and male parent linkage Table 2. Social interactions represent important environmental cues for SD in hermaphroditic species Godwin, Fig 4.
Embryos were obtained by natural spawning and were cultured in egg water. Temperature influence on sex shifting can be exerted at several points of the differentiation cascade.
