Evolution of ZZ/ZW and XX/XY sex-determination systems in the closely related medaka species, Oryzias hubbsi and O. dancena


A DM-domain gene on the Y chromosome was identified as the sex-determining gene in the medaka, Oryzias latipes, and named DMY (also known as dmrt1bY). However, this gene is absent in most Oryzias fishes, suggesting that closely related species have another sex-determining gene. In fact, it has been demonstrated that the Y chromosome in O. dancena is not… (More)
