A New Look at Sex Determination in Poeciliid Fishes
The recent increased interest in sex-determining mechanisms can be traced directly to Wachtel’s concept that the H-Y antigen is the primary testis organizer. There have been several comprehensiveExpand

GENETIC BASIS FOR ALTERNATIVE REPRODUCTIVE TACTICS IN THE PYGMY SWORDTAIL, XIPHOPHORUS NIGRENSIS
Differences in adult male size and age at sexual maturity in the Río Coy (Mexico) population of Xiphophorus nigrensis (Pisces; Poeciliidae) are controlled by genetic variation at a Y‐linked locus.Expand

Differences in transcription and promoters of Xmrk-1 and Xmrk-2 genes suggest a role for Xmrk-2 in pigment pattern development in the platyfish, Xiphophorus maculatus.
Pigment (macromelanophore) patterns in the platyfish Xiphophorus maculatus are due to a complex pigmentary locus; for example, the spotted-dorsal (Sd) fin pattern is due to the Sd locus. InExpand

A Sex-Linked Gene Controlling the Onset of Sexual Maturity in Female and Male Platyfish (XIPHOPHORUS MACULATUS), Fecundity in Females and Adult Size in Males.
A sex-linked gene, P, controls the onset of sexual maturity in the platyfish, Xiphophorus maculatus. The activity of this gene is correlated with the age and size at which the gonadotropic zone ofExpand
