Sex differentiation of channel catfish gonads: Normal development and effects of temperature

Abstract:

Channel catfish have an XX female-XY male sex determination system. Although genetic males of this species are readily feminized with exogenous steroid, the pattern of gonadal sex differentiation and the effect of temperature on genetic sex determination are unknown. To document the pattern of gonadal sex differentiation, catfish from a mixed-sex progeny (XX female-XY male cross), known XY males (XX female-YY male cross), and steroid sex-reversed (XY) females were reared at 28°C and collected...
