• Entry into puberty is reflected in changes in hormone production but not in testicular receptor expression in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) 

      Schulz, Rüdiger W.; Taranger, Geir Lasse; Bogerd, Jan; Nijenhuis, Wouter; Norberg, Birgitta; Male, Rune; Andersson, Eva (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-06-21)
      Background Puberty in male Atlantic salmon in aquaculture can start as early as after the first winter in seawater, stunts growth and entails welfare problems due to the maturation-associated loss of osmoregulation capacity ...
    • Sex differentiation in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua L.): morphological and gene expression studies 

      Haugen, Trine; Almeida, Fernanda F. L.; Andersson, Eva; Bogerd, Jan; Male, Rune; Skaar, Katrine Sandnes; Schulz, Rüdiger W.; Sørhus, Elin; Wijgerde, Tim; Taranger, Geir Lasse (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012-06-18)
      Background: In differentiated gonochoristic species, a bipotential gonad develops into an ovary or testis during sex differentiation. Knowledge about this process is necessary to improve methods for masculinizing genetically ...
    • Vgll3 and the Hippo pathway are regulated in Sertoli cells upon entry and during puberty in Atlantic salmon testis 

      Kjærner-Semb, Erik Nordtorp; Ayllon, Fernando; Kleppe, Lene; Sørhus, Elin; Skaftnesmo, Kai Ove; Furmanek, Tomasz; Segafredo, Frida Thyri; Thorsen, Anders; Fjelldal, Per Gunnar; Hansen, Tom Johnny; Taranger, Geir Lasse; Andersson, Eva; Schulz, Rüdiger W.; Wargelius, Anna; Edvardsen, Rolf (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-01-30)
      Vgll3 is linked to age at maturity in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). However, the molecular mechanisms involving Vgll3 in controlling timing of puberty as well as relevant tissue and cell types are currently unknown. Vgll3 ...
