The Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas is a successive not systematic protandric hermaphrodite. Searching for an ortholog to Dmrt1, a conserved sex determinism factor, we have identified the first complete cDNA of a DM factor in Lophotrochozoa which we have called Cg-DMl (Crassostrea gigas DMRT-like). It is 359aa long, with the DM domain common to all the family factors, and one DMA domain specific to members such as Dmrt4 and Dmrt5. Its gene presents one intron of 598 bp. Real time PCR and in… CONTINUE READING
