Structure and decay of a proto-Y region in Tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus
(BioMed Central, 2014)
Sex-determination genes drive the evolution of adjacent chromosomal regions. Sexually antagonistic selection favors the accumulation of inversions that reduce recombination in regions adjacent to the sex-determination gene. ...
Comparative analysis of a sex chromosome from the blackchin tilapia, Sarotherodon melanotheron
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Background: Inversions and other structural polymorphisms often reduce the rate of recombination between sex chromosomes, making it impossible to fine map sex-determination loci using traditional genetic mapping techniques. ...
Integrated analysis of miRNA and mRNA expression profiles in tilapia gonads at an early stage of sex differentiation
(Springer Nature, 2016-05-04)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) represent a second regulatory network that has important effects on gene expression and protein translation during biological process. However, the possible role of miRNAs in the early stages of fish sex ...
A high quality assembly of the Nile Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) genome reveals the structure of two sex determination regions
(Springer Nature, 2017-05-02)
Tilapias are the second most farmed fishes in the world and a sustainable source of food. Like many other fish, tilapias are sexually dimorphic and sex is a commercially important trait in these fish. In this study, we ...
