Title
Background Members of the makorin (mkrn) gene family encode RING/C3H zinc finger proteins with U3 ubiquitin ligase activity. Although these proteins have been described in a variety of eukaryotes such as plants, fungi, invertebrates and vertebrates i...
Nile tilapia has primarily a XX/XY sex determining system but minor genetic factors as well as temperature can override the major factors. Female XX progenies can be sex-reversed into functional males by rearing at high temperatures (>34 °C) from 10 ...
In the tilapia species group, the major sex determining factors have been located on Linkage Group 1 (LG1), on a small chromosome (Chr) pair in Oreochromis niloticus, on LG3 (the largest Chr pair) in O. aureus or on both, depending on populations/str...
Cichlid fishes are famous for large, diverse and replicated adaptive radiations in the Great Lakes of East Africa. To understand the molecular mechanisms underlying cichlid phenotypic diversity, we sequenced the genomes and transcriptomes of five lin...
The development of a saline tolerant tilapia strain able to grow fast is of importance in the Philippines, where 240,000 ha of brackish water ponds are available. To this end, founder hybridization between Oreochromis niloticus (with favorable growth...
Background Reconstructing the evolutionary history of a species is challenging. It often depends not only on the past biogeographic and climatic events but also the contemporary and ecological factors, such as current connectivity and habitat heterog...
Contradictory studies suggest IGF-I in fish liver and gills is involved in osmoregulation, but nothing is known about the kidney and intestine's role nor about IGF-II's role in any organ. Tilapia were transferred from freshwater (FW) to seawater (SW)...
In this study, we sought to determine the mechanism of early sex reversal in a teleost by applying 4 hr feminization treatments to XY (17α-ethynylestradiol 2000 µgL -1) and YY (6500 µgL -1) Nile tilapia embryos on the first day post-fertilization (dp...
