Limited sex-biased neural gene expression patterns across strains in Zebrafish (Danio rerio)


By: R. Wong n, M. McLeod n & J. Godwin n

author keywords: Sexual dimorphism; Sexual plasticity; Brain; Danio rerio; Sex; Gene expression; Transcriptome; RNA-sequencing; Gene coexpression network
MeSH headings : Animals; Brain / metabolism; Female; Fish Proteins / genetics; Fish Proteins / metabolism; Gene Expression Regulation; Gene Regulatory Networks; Male; Molecular Sequence Data; Oligonucleotide Array Sequence Analysis; Sequence Analysis, RNA; Sex Factors; Zebrafish / anatomy & histology; Zebrafish / classification; Zebrafish / genetics
TL;DR: Despite differences in morphology, physiology, and behavior, there is limited sex-biased neural gene expression in zebrafish, and genes found to be sex- biased are associated with hormone biosynthesis, suggesting that sex steroid hormones may be key contributors to sexual behavioral plasticity seen in teleosts.
