• homology
  • Comparison of the grass carp growth hormone gene with those of other fish indicates that there is a high degree of homology with the gene from the common carp but not with those from the rainbow trout and Atlantic salmon. (jcvi.org)
  • These data confirm the homology of electroreceptors and ampullary organs in cartilaginous and non-teleost bony fishes, and indicate that jawed vertebrates primitively possessed a lateral line placode-derived system of electrosensory ampullary organs and mechanosensory neuromasts.

  • high
  • Cichlids exemplify the high turnover rate of sex chromosomes in fish with two different chromosomes, LG5 and LG18, containing major sex-determining loci in the two populations of A. burtoni examined here. (biomedcentral.com)
