Abstract

A qPCR assay was developed to measure expression of male-specific vitelline coat lysin (VCL) and female-specific vitelline envelop receptor for lysin (VERL) in the mantle of Mytilus edulis, the common mussel. The ability of the method to correctly assign sex was validated by a combination of histology and a previously developed end-point RT–PCR for these transcripts (Hines et al. 2007).
