Effects of sperm irradiation and heat shock on induction of gynogenesis in muskellunge (Esox masquinongy)
Lin, Feng; Dabrowski, Konrad (1996)
We report here the first induction of gynogenesis in esocid fish by UV irradiation and heat shock. Optimal dosage of sperm UV irradiation was in the range of 1440-2160 J/m2. Eggs fertilized with irradiated sperm at such ...
Induction of Gynogenesis in Muskellunge With Irradiated Sperm of Yellow Perch Proves Diploid Muskellunge Male Homogamety
Dabrowski, Konrad; Rinchard, Jacques; Lin, Feng; Garcia-Abiado, Mary Ann; Schmidt, Dana (2000)
Diploid gynogenesis was induced in muskellunge Esox masquinongy using UV-irradiated muskellunge sperm as the first step in producing monosex females. In this approach, we have to rely on negative controls as an indirect ...
