The Testis Is a Primary Factor That Contributes to Epigenetic Modifications in the Ovaries of the Protandrous Black Porgy, Acanthopagrus schlegelii.

Abstract

In most hermaphroditic fish, the sexual phase of the gonad responds to external stimuli so that only one sex remains functional while the other sex becomes dormant. However, protandrous black porgy are male during their first two reproductive cycles. Estradiol (E2)-induced female growth results in a transient and immature female, and the sexual phase… (More)
