Abstract

The high biodiversity of fish in the Neotropical region contrasts with scarce or biased studies on the mechanisms involved in the sex determination in members of this fauna. In this review, we attempted to compile the information available on determination, differentiation, and manipulation of sex...

Abstract

Mx proteins are antiviral GTPases, which are induced by type I IFN and virus infection. Analysis of the Atlantic salmon genome revealed the presence of 9 Mx genes localized to three chromosomes. A cluster of three Mx genes (SsaMx1-SsaMx3), which includes previously cloned Mx genes, is present on...

Abstract

Distant hybridization occurs widely in fishes and is a useful strategy to produce different ploidy offsprings. In this study, we obtained androgenetic blunt snout bream (2n=48, ADBSB), triploid hybrids (3n=124, 3nJB) and tetraploid hybrids (4n=148, 4nJB) from the hybridization of two species from...

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...

Abstract

To protect the germplasm resources of Pampus argenteus and provide reference for the exploration of the origin, evolutionary status of the species and the guidance of genetic breeding, this study collected pomfret with the age of 1 year (Pampus argenteus) as material, from Fuding Artificial...

Abstract

In mammals, the binding of distinct costimulatory ligands CD80 and CD86 to their receptors is essential for optimal T cell activation. Previous studies have shown that only a single CD80/86 gene exists in rainbow trout (termed rtCD80/86A) and other teleost fish, suggesting that CD80 and CD86 arose...

Abstract

The Sox gene family has been systematically characterized in some fish species but not in catfish Ictalurus punctatus. In this study, 25 Sox genes were identified in the channel catfish genome and classified into seven families based on their conserved domains as follows: eight genes in SoxB group...

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...

Abstract

B chromosomes (Bs) are enigmatic additional elements in the genomes of thousands of species of plants, animals, and fungi. How do these non-essential, harmful, and parasitic chromosomes maintain their presence in their hosts, making demands on all the essential functions of their host genomes? The...

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...
