  1. pmc Developmental origin and evolution of bacteriocytes in the aphid-Buchnera symbiosis
    Christian Braendle
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, USA
    PLoS Biol 1:E21. 2003
    ..The evolutionary transition to a symbiosis in which bacteria and an aphid cell form a functional unit, similar to the origin of plastids, has apparently involved extensive molecular adaptations on the part of the host cell...
  2. ncbi Genetic mapping of aphicarus -- a sex-linked locus controlling a wing polymorphism in the pea aphid (Acyrthosiphon pisum)
    C Braendle
    Laboratory for Development and Evolution, University Museum of Zoology, Cambridge CB2 3EJ, UK
    Heredity (Edinb) 94:435-42. 2005

    Christian Braendle
    Institut Jacques Monod, CNRS Universités Paris 6 and 7, Tour 43, 2 place Jussieu, 75251 Paris Cedex 05, France
    Curr Biol 16:R468-71. 2006
    ..elegans and C. briggsae, however, produce self-fertile hermaphrodites instead of females. These transitions to hermaphroditism evolved convergently through distinct modifications of germline sex determination mechanisms...

    C Braendle
    Institut Jacques Monod, CNRS, Universités Paris 6 and 7, Tour 43, 2 place Jussieu, 75251 Paris Cedex 05, France
    Heredity (Edinb) 97:192-9. 2006
    ..We first provide a description of the dimorphism and an overview of its phylogenetic distribution. We then review what is known about the mechanisms underlying the dimorphism and end by discussing its evolutionary aspects...

    Christian Braendle
    Institut Jacques Monod, CNRS, Universités Paris 6 and 7, Paris, France
    Bioessays 28:868-73. 2006
