Gonopodium development in normal male and 11-ketotestosterone-treated female mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis): a quantitative study using computer image analysis.

Abstract

Mature male mosquitofish possess a highly modified anal fin called a gonopodium that develops from an unmodified female-like anal fin under the influence of endogenous androgens at sexual maturity. Although females do not normally develop gonopodia, their anal fins can be induced to develop into gonopodium-like structures by the administration of androgens… (More)
