Evidence for two distinct functional glucocorticoid receptors in teleost fish.
Using RT-PCR with degenerated primers followed by screening of a rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) intestinal cDNA library, we have isolated from the rainbow trout a new corticosteroid receptorExpand

Endocrine and environmental aspects of sex differentiation in fish
Abstract. This paper reviews the current knowledge concerning the endocrine and environmental regulations of both gonadal sex differentiation in gonochoristic and sex inversion in hermaphroditicExpand

Ovarian aromatase and estrogens: a pivotal role for gonadal sex differentiation and sex change in fish.
The present review focuses on the roles of estrogens and aromatase (Cyp19a1a), the enzyme needed for their synthesis, in fish gonadal sex differentiation. Based on the recent literature, we extendExpand

DMRT1 expression during gonadal differentiation and spermatogenesis in the rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss.
DMRT1 has been suggested to be the first conserved gene involved in sex differentiation found from invertebrates to human. To gain insight on its implication for fish gonadal differentiation, weExpand

An Immune-Related Gene Evolved into the Master Sex-Determining Gene in Rainbow Trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss
Since the discovery of Sry in mammals [1, 2], few other master sex-determining genes have been identified in vertebrates [3-7]. To date, all of these genes have been characterized as well-knownExpand

The sexually dimorphic on the Y-chromosome gene (sdY) is a conserved male-specific Y-chromosome sequence in many salmonids
All salmonid species investigated to date have been characterized with a male heterogametic sex‐determination system. However, as these species do not share any Y‐chromosome conserved synteny, thereExpand

Large-Scale Temporal Gene Expression Profiling During Gonadal Differentiation and Early Gametogenesis in Rainbow Trout1
Abstract The overall understanding of the sex differentiation cascade in vertebrates is still growing slowly, probably because of the variety of vertebrate models used and the number of molecularExpand

The spotted gar genome illuminates vertebrate evolution and facilitates human-to-teleost comparisons
To connect human biology to fish biomedical models, we sequenced the genome of spotted gar (Lepisosteus oculatus), whose lineage diverged from teleosts before teleost genome duplication (TGD). TheExpand

Characterization of early molecular sex differentiation in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss
Early differentiation in rainbow trout gonads was investigated by expression profiling and in situ hybridization (ISH). Expression of cyp19a1 and fst in females and sox9a1 in males were sexuallyExpand

An evolutionary and functional analysis of FoxL2 in rainbow trout gonad differentiation.
FOXL2 is a forkhead transcription factor involved in ovarian development and function. Here, we have studied the evolution and pattern of expression of the FOXL2 gene and its paralogs in fish. WeExpand
