A new linkage group involved in sex determination in haplotilapiine cichlids

Journal of Fish Biology, 03-Aug-2021


" The high diversity of sex chromosomes and sex determination systems among haplotilapiines suggest that this large cichlid clade is a good model for investigating the genetic evolution of sex. However, information about sex determination in this clade remains sparse. The present study reports a microsatellite marker that is closely associated with sex in Xenotilapia rotundiventralis from Lake Tanganyika, Africa. This study is the first to suggest a role of linkage group 17 in sex determination in haplotilapiine cichlids "
