Tissue samples were assayed independently of each other and not pooled. All animal procedures were performed in accordance with National Institutes of Health and Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee guidelines on the care and use of animals protocol no. By taking advantage of the conserved nature of male-typical mounting as triggered robustly by T, we are able to focus on how the neurochemistry at specific brain nuclei interact in a circuit to elicit normally sex-typical behaviors independent of the nature of the hormonal trigger.
Shoemaker CMQueen JCrews D Response of candidate sex-determining genes to changes in temperature reveals their involvement in the molecular network underlying temperature-dependent sex determination. T, VI. Cluster of Crepidula snails. Crews D Evolution of neuroendocrine mechanisms that regulate sexual behavior.
Nicole Valenzuela and Valentine Lance, 5—8. Estrogen can override temperature and induce ovarian differentiation even at masculinizing temperatures. Non-genetic sex determination occurs when the sex of an organism can be altered during a sensitive period of development due to external factors such as temperature, humidity, or social interactions.
As mentioned in Chapter 3, the sex of the echiuroid worm Bonellia depends on where a larva settles. Journal of Evolutionary Biology. Prenatal and early childhood exposure to phthalates and childhood behavior at age 7 years. Advanced Search.
Pieau, Claude. A study found that hot temperatures altered the expression of the sex chromosomes in Australia's bearded dragon lizards. Tissue samples were assayed independently of each other and not pooled. Summers CH Mechanisms for quick and variable responses.
This thermosensitive period occurs after the egg has been laid, so sex determination in these reptiles is at the mercy of the ambient conditions affecting egg clutches in nests. Post hoc analysis was accomplished using Tukey HSD.
Andrea Gore, Dr. This sex-determining gene is seen throughout the vertebrates, where its expression in gonads correlates extremely well with the production of testes. Temporal patterns of limbic monoamine and plasma corticosterone response during social stress.

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.
