Abstract

In the genetic sex determination of vertebrates, the gonadal sex depends on the combination of sex chromosomes that a zygote possesses. Despite the discovery of the sex-determining gene (SRY/Sry) in mammals in 1990s, the sex-determining gene in non-mammalian vertebrates remained an enigma for over...

Abstract

The evolution of genes related to sex and reproduction in fish shows high plasticity and, to date, the sex determination system has only been identified in a few species. Solea senegalensis has 42 chromosomes and an XX/XY chromosome system for sex determination, while related species show the ZZ/ZW ...

Abstract

The complement components C1r and C1s play a crucial role in innate immunity via activation of the classical complement cascade system. As initiators of the pathogen-induced signaling cascade, C1r and C1s modulate innate immunity. In order to understand the immune responses of teleost C1r and C1s, ...

Abstract

Background: Rainbow trout is an economically important fish and a suitable experimental organism in many fields of biology including genome evolution, owing to the occurrence of a salmonid specific whole-genome duplication (4th WGD). Rainbow trout is among some of the most studied teleosts and has...

Abstract

The gonadal soma-derived factor (GSDF) belongs to the transforming growth factor-β superfamily and is conserved in teleostean fish species. Gsdf is specifically expressed in the gonads, and gene expression is restricted to the granulosa and Sertoli cells in trout and medaka. The gsdf gene...

Abstract

The independent evolution of sex chromosomes in many eukaryotic species raises questions about the evolutionary forces that drive their formation. Recent advances in our understanding of these genomic structures in mammals in parallel with alternate models such as the monotremes, fish, dioecious...

Abstract

The impact of the genome sequence for fish species for which it is already available is reviewed. How the combination of genomics with more traditional disciplines may pave the way for a wider impact on biology is examined. The use of fish genomic sequence as a model of other vertebrate genomes is...

Abstract

Genetic sex determination in an XX-XY chromosome system can be realized through a locus on the Y chromosome that makes the undifferentiated gonad develop into a testis. Although this mechanism is widespread, only in two cases so far have the corresponding master male sex-determining genes been...

Abstract

Because the zebrafish lineage is basally diverging among Euteleost fish, analysis of its genome can complement information from other key species to understand the origin of genomes of teleost fish, the most species-rich group of vertebrates, and to infer some history of the human genome. Analysis...

Abstract

Genes from the DM gene family of Fugu rubripes and Oryzias latipes were cloned and characterized to gain an understanding of human gene structure and function, and evolution of the vertebrate genome. Gene structure and gene order were found to be highly conserved within a larger region of synteny...
