Abstract

Assessing the immediate and long-term evolutionary consequences of human-mediated hybridization is of major concern for conservation biology. Several studies have documented how selection in interaction with recombination modulates introgression at a genome-wide scale, but few have considered the...

Abstract

Myxovirus resistance (Mx) proteins are interferon (IFN)-inducible Dynamin-like GTPases, which play an important role in antiviral immunity. Three Mx genes (Mx1-3) have been cloned previously in rainbow trout. In this study, an additional six Mx genes were cloned that reside in four chromosomal...

Abstract

Karyotypic data from Australian native freshwater fishes are scarce, having been described from relatively few species. Golden perch (Macquaria ambigua) and Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii) are two large-bodied freshwater fish species native to Australia with significant indigenous, cultural,...

Abstract

Oplegnathus fasciatus and O. punctatus (Teleostei: Centrarchiformes: Oplegnathidae), are commercially important rocky reef fishes, endemic to East Asia. Both species present an X1X2Y sex chromosome system. Here, we investigated the evolutionary forces behind the origin and differentiation of these...

Abstract

The glucose transporters (GLUTs) are well known for their essential roles in moving the key metabolites, glucose, galactose, fructose and a number of other important substrates in and out of cells. In this study, we identified a total of 21 glut genes in spotted sea bass (Lateolabrax maculatus)...

Abstract

Osteoglossiformes represents one of the most ancestral teleost lineages, currently widespread over almost all continents, except for Antarctica. However, data involving advanced molecular cytogenetics or comparative genomics are yet largely limited for this fish group. Therefore, the present...

Abstract

Chromosome banding pattern study is a useful tool in exploring evolutionary mechanisms of fish because it provides basic information on the banding number, size and morphology of chromosomes. Up to now, there has been no report on chromosome banding patterns in fishes. In order to understand the...

Abstract

The present study aimed to investigate whether the Gfra1/Gdnf and/or Kit/Kitlg regulatory pathways could be involved in the regulation of spermatogonial cell proliferation and/or differentiation in fish. Homologs of the mammalian gfra1, gdnf, kitr, and kitlg genes were identified in gnathostomes...

Abstract

Background: Solea senegalensis (Kaup, 1858) is a commercially important flatfish species, belonging to the Pleuronectiformes order. The taxonomy of this group has long been controversial, and the karyotype of the order presents a high degree of variability in diploid number, derived from...

AbstractFull Text

In order to obtain cytogenetic data of Odontobutis potamophila, head-kidney cells were collected as experimental materials to prepare chromosome specimen. The karyotypes of O. potamophila and the distribution and amount of transcriptionally active nucleolar organizer regions on chromosomes were...
