FOXL2 is a member of the forkhead box family, a transcription factor essential for the early regulation of ovarian development that is expressed in a sexually dimorphic manner in vertebrates. However, data on this gene in invertebrates are rare. In this study, we cloned a full-length cDNA sequence of foxl2 from the scallop Chlamys farreri, an important… CONTINUE READING
