From: Gene expression underlying enhanced, steroid-dependent auditory sensitivity of hair cell epithelium in a vocal fish

Reproductive Vocal Upregulation
Cholesterol 25-hydroxylase protein member 1 H/VMN
Connexin 43 (Gap junction α-1) H/VMN
Voltage-gated potassium channel subfamily c member 4 H/VMN
Sodium channel protein type 8 subunit α H/VMN
Two pore calcium channel protein 1 H/VMN
Connexin 30 (Gap junction β-6) VMN
Calcium-activated potassium channel subunit α-1 (BK) Night VMN
Transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily m member 7 VMN
Anoctamin-10 Night VMN
  1. Transcripts of these candidate genes, upregulated in reproductive SE, were also more abundant in vocal regions of the CNS of reproductive type I males [22]. Some transcripts were upregulated throughout the hindbrain and VMN (H/VMN), some were upregulated only in the VMN (VMN), and others had increased abundance restricted to VMN at night (Night VMN), the time of peak vocal activity
