I am interested in how organisms determine their sex during
development. I am familiar with Drosophila and C. elegans sex determination
mechanisms but have not seen an reference to zebrafish literature. Do
zebrafish have heterogametic (XX, XY) sex chromosomes? Is their sex
determination mechanism genetic or environmental? Any information
concerning the process of sex determination in the soma or germline of
zebrafish would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
