Evolution of gene expression in the Drosophila olfactory system. The control of sex determination is assumed to maintain a sex ratio. Getting a full dose? The conclusions of this study are dependent on the distributions of the parameters Uf and h.
Evolution of haplodiploidy: models for inbred and outbred systems. Reconsidering sex chromosome dosage compensation in the silkworm, Bombyx mori. As expected, the critical value of f rises as the proportion of sib matings increases see Fig.
If compensation is incomplete, this can lead to expression imbalance and sex-biased gene expression. M anduca sexta contigs were assigned putative chromosome locations from their corresponding orthologs in B. Genetics49 : —
However, without detailed genetic analysis, homomorphic sex chromosomes are difficult to identify. Renner, S. Identification of intergenomic recombinations in unisexual salamanders of the genus Ambystoma by genomic in situ hybridization GISH. Then, we discuss the mechanisms that might select for these fusions as well as their potential role in phenotypic evolution and speciation.
In comparison to that, the male-specific region of karyomorph G, covering the entire short arms of the Y 1 chromosome, was stained almost exclusively by the G-derived probe, while the B-derived probe produced only faint and dispersed signals in this region Figures 2Q—T.
The Erythrinidae family Teleostei: Characiformes is a small group of Neotropical fishes with a wide distribution throughout South America. Google Scholar. Despite its wide distribution, this taxon is characterized by low vagility, tending to constitute small populations, being able to survive under low oxygen conditions and to adapt to new environments Rantin et al.
The authors would like to thank all meeting participants for sharing their results and ideas and for their comments on this review, and the organizers of the Drosophila Research Conference for providing an excellent venue for the workshop. Lack of global dosage compensation in Schistosoma mansoni , a female-heterogametic parasite.
Of these 5, contigs, were sex biased in the differential expression analysis, and thus, functional information from their D. However, the considerations above need not apply under full inbreeding because haploid males would not enter into competition with diploid males and thus their weakness need not cause a corresponding decrease in fitness Borgia, Functional enrichment was performed using orthologous genes in Drosophila melanogaster , obtained through a Blast comparison of all M.
Since X-linked genes are hemizygous in males, a recessive mutation that favors male fitness at the expense of females may be positively selected until it reaches high enough frequency to produce a noticeable number of homozygous females.
