Nucleic Acids Res. Behav Ecol Sociobiol. J, Paukstis G. Transcriptome assembly Reads were splice-mapped across exon boundaries to the Chrysemys genome version 3. Mean and one standard deviation are presented. While aromatase is involved in more processes than only TSD, it has also been shown to play a role in certain tumor development.
W, Petrie M. In contrast, in many reptiles including crocodilians, select chelonians and squamates, differential sexual outcomes have been identified under varying incubation temperatures during a critical temperature sensitive period TSP in the developing embryo temperature-dependent sex determination; TSD 123.
Hermaphrodite Intersex Disorders of sex development Sex reversal. Development A eds Gans C. The lizards were female in appearance and were capable of bearing offspring, despite having the ZZ chromosomes usually associated with male lizards.
In many of the environmentally sex determination ESD models, it is widely accepted that a presence of an environmental sensor-like element is responsible for the initiation of sex determination cascade. Structure and hibernation-associated expression of the transient receptor potential vanilloid 4 channel TRPV4 mRNA in the Japanese grass lizard Takydromus tachydromoides.
In: Deeming D. Analyzing the coordinated gene network underlying temperature-dependent sex determination in reptiles. In this species, high incubation temperature during egg development reverses genotypic males ZZ into phenotypic females; so females can be ZZ or ZW, but males are always ZZ.

Cluster of Crepidula snails. Pattern does not equal process: exactly when is sex environmentally determined? Since this mapping was carried out under low stringency conditions, this difference is likely due to the absence of many novel transcripts in Apalone , the GSD turtle, as extensive divergence is not expected in coding sequences between Chrysemys and Apalone given that transcripts from Chrysemys and Apalone are more often identical than not data not shown.
