Introduction the sex of organisms is determined either by genetic factors and/or by environmental factors to determine whether feminization of gonads in gsdf.
Sex determination in vertebrates, the process of forming an ovary or testis from a bipotential gonad, can be initiated by genetic or environmental factors. Introduction to sex determination although the male somatic gonad differs substantially in overall morphology from that of the hermaphrodite, the cell lineages. Search springerlink review of the gonad index (gi) and an introduction to the they also show that it would be of interest to determine a gi critical value in.

Introduction new developments germ cell sex determination in mammals, mhr: basic science of and meiosis-preventing substances in the developing gonad, and. Sex development can be divided into two processes, sex determination, which is the developmental decision that directs the undifferentiated gonad to develop as a testis or ovary and sex differentiation, which occurs once the gonad has developed and is induced by the products of the gonad to establish the phenotypic sex.

Olive flounder ( paralichthys olivaceus) is an economically important cultured marine fish in china, korea, and japan controlling and managing the breeding of olive flounder in captivity is an transcriptome analysis of the gonads of olive flounder ( paralichthys olivaceus) | springerlink.
Introduction sex determination, unlike many developmental processes, is characterized by a lack of conservation throughout the vertebrates although two sex-determining genes, sry/sry  and dmy [2, 3] have been identified in mammals and a teleost fish, the medaka oryzias latipes, respectively, their gene structures are entirely different. Introduction the development of gonads (gonadogenesis) has been investigated in detail in a few vertebrate species, mostly in rodents although the general model of gonad development seems to be universal for all vertebrates, differentiation of an ovary and a testis shows variation in particular vertebrate groups. The greatest advantage of the surgical biopsy of the gonad is that it is the most reliable method to identify the sex in sturgeon, especially at an early age (16-36 months), and to determine the stage of sexual maturity of the gonads (the publications fa153 and fa154, explain the procedure for obtaining mature oocytes to determine their.
Introduction sex determination provides an ideal system for examining how a binary fate choice (male or female) is integrated with the early gonad is. Sex, maturity and fecundity 51 introduction the determination of the sex ratio and of the sequence of changes in maturity stage during the year are of considerable importance in building a thorough knowledge of the general biology of an exploited stock. Abstract in mammals, several genes including the wilms tumor suppressor genewt1, the lim homeobox gene lhx9, and the gene encoding steroidogenic factor 1 (sf1) have been implicated in the development of the indifferent gonad prior to sexual differentiation.
The gonad arises from the thickening of the coelomic epithelium and then commits into the sex determination process testis differentiation is activated by the expression of the y-linked gene sry , which promotes cell proliferation and differentiation of sertoli cells, the supporting cells of the testis. A critical gene involved in mammalian sex determination and differentiation is the sry-related gene sox9in reptiles, sox9 resembles that of mammals in both structure and expression pattern in the developing gonad, but a causal role in male sex determination has not been established.
