  • Due to the presence of genetically well-defined sex chromosomes, with a relatively restricted sex-determination region containing markers identified at the molecular level, the platyfish Xiphophorus maculatus is one of the best models for the positional cloning of a master sex-determining gene in fish. Both male and female heterogametes and three different types of sex chromosomes have been described in the platyfish, with several loci involved in pigmentation, melanoma formation, and sexual… CONTINUE READING
