The Ftz-F1 genes encode orphan receptors of the nuclear receptor superfamily. The mammalian Ftz-F1 homologue, SF-1, has been found to be essential for the proper development of the adrenal-gonadal axis and it also plays a critical role in mammalian sex-determination. We report here the isolation and characterisation of a novel zebrafish Ftz-F1 gene, ff1b… CONTINUE READING
