Although this could be interpreted as evidence of differential segregation distortion between the sexes, the majority of these markers were skewed towards the absence of the marker, suggesting inherent difficulties with PCR amplification rather than segregation distortion.
Relative quantification was calculated to estimate gain or loss of copy number with reference to paternal gDNA sample . Heredity 95 : —
Construction of integrated genetic linkage maps by means of a new computer package: JoinMap. Discussion Our phenotypic and genetic mapping results support a model of gender determination with at least two linked loci or gene regions with major effects, and the existence of both female and hermaphrodite heterogamety in F.
To ask whether rearing density influences sex determination in zebrafish, we raised groups of zebrafish at three different densities from 5 dpf to adulthood and assayed the sex ratios of the resulting adults. Rights and permissions Reprints and Permissions. Genome The percentage of males from repeated single pair mating of 19 randomly selected zebrafish pairs.
Tags: chromosomes determination hermaphrodite sex. PLoS Genet 8: e More research must be conducted in order to determine the exact sex determining gene of the platypus. In populations with a skewed sex ratio, selection on autosomal genes typically favors equal investment in males and females and a new GSD or ESD system can become established if it restores a more even sex ratio.

As each linkage group in the diploid may be represented by as many as four linkage groups in the octoploid, it is not unlikely that products from the various primer pairs present in one linkage group in the diploid would be represented by more than one linkage group in the octoploid.
In our opinion, these two situations are principally the same, as there are several genes distributed throughout the genome with major effects on sexual development in both; therefore we propose that zebrafish sex determination should be considered polygenic. Fish husbandry Adult zebrafish were kept as mixed sex groups in 2.
