A generalized model of the involvement of different genes in zebrafish sex determination and differentiation. While little is known of the hierarchy of genes involved in zebrafish sex determination and differentiation several genes have been identified. While aromatase has been shown to play a central role in zebrafish sex differentiation the environmental and/or genetic mechanisms have not been fully elucidated. ⊥: Inhibition, ↓: stimulation.
