Title
Abstract Background The Nile tilapia is the second most important fish in aquaculture. It is an excellent laboratory model, and is closely related to the African lake cichlids famous for their rapid rates of speciation. A suite of genomic resources h...
Abstract Background The Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) is the second most farmed fish species worldwide. It is also an important model for studies of fish physiology, particularly because of its broad tolerance to an array of environments. It i...
A role for GH and IGF-I in the modulation of the immune system has been under discussion for decades. Generally, GH is considered a stimulator of innate immune parameters in mammals and teleost fish. The stimulatory effects in humans as well as in bo...
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...
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...
The present study aimed to develop nondestructive methods to accurately follow the growth of fish larvae and post-larvae. European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) aged 71-100 days post fertilization (dpf; 20-419 mg) and Nile tilapia (Oreochromis nilo...
Oestrogens and insulin-like growth factors (Igfs) play both a central role in the regulation of reproduction and growth and can interact especially in species showing a clear-cut sex-linked growth dimorphism (SGD) like in tilapia. Aromatase is essent...
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...
