Sex-specific differences in the synaptonemal complex in the genus Oreochromis (Cichlidae)


Total synaptonemal complex (SC) lengths were estimated from Oreochromis aureus Steindachner (which has a WZ/ZZ sex determination system), O. mossambicus Peters and O. niloticus L. (both of which have XX/XY sex determination systems). The total SC length in oocytes was greater than that in spermatocytes in all three species (194 ± 30 μm and 134 ± 13 μm, 187… (More)
