- Faster-X evolution of gene expression in DrosophilaRichard P Meisel
Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA
PLoS Genet 8:e1003013. 2012..Finally, we present a conceptional framework to explain faster-X expression evolution, and we use this framework to examine differences in the faster-X effect between Drosophila and mammals...
- Disentangling the relationship between sex-biased gene expression and X-linkageRichard P Meisel
Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York 14853, USA
Genome Res 22:1255-65. 2012..However, some taxon-specific patterns remain, and we provide evidence that these are in part a consequence of constraints imposed by the dosage compensation mechanism in Drosophila...
- Repeat mediated gene duplication in the Drosophila pseudoobscura genomeRichard P Meisel
Department of Biology, Intercollege Graduate Program in Genetics, The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA 16802, USA
Gene 438:1-7. 2009..This suggests that the molecular mechanisms responsible for chromosomal rearrangements and some duplicated genes have overlapping processes...
- Adaptive evolution of genes duplicated from the Drosophila pseudoobscura neo-X chromosomeRichard P Meisel
Intercollege Graduate Program in Genetics, The Pennsylvania State University, PA, USA
Mol Biol Evol 27:1963-78. 2010....
- Towards a more nuanced understanding of the relationship between sex-biased gene expression and rates of protein-coding sequence evolutionRichard P Meisel
Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cornell University, USA
Mol Biol Evol 28:1893-900. 2011..melanogaster, however, evolve faster than other narrowly expressed genes. Therefore, the rapid evolution of sex-biased genes is limited only to those genes primarily expressed in sex-limited reproductive tissues...
- Evolutionary dynamics of recently duplicated genes: Selective constraints on diverging paralogs in the Drosophila pseudoobscura genomeRichard P Meisel
Department of Biology, The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, 16802, USA
J Mol Evol 69:81-93. 2009..Therefore, the relative position of paralogs and the mechanism of duplication indirectly affect whether a duplicated gene is retained or pseudogenized...
- The faster-X effect: integrating theory and dataRichard P Meisel
Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA
Trends Genet 29:537-44. 2013..However, there are clearly delineated aspects of the problem for which additional modeling and collection of genomic data will address these discrepancies and provide novel insights into the population genetics of adaptation. ..
- The poly(A) polymerase GLD2 is required for spermatogenesis in Drosophila melanogasterCaroline V Sartain
Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA
Development 138:1619-29. 2011..Our results indicate that GLD2 is an important regulator of late spermatogenesis and is the first example of a Gld-2 family member that plays a significant role specifically in male gametogenesis...
- Meiotic transmission of Drosophila pseudoobscura chromosomal arrangementsRichard P Meisel
Intercollege Graduate Program in Genetics, Institute of Molecular Evolutionary Genetics, and Department of Biology, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, Pennsylvania, United States of America
PLoS ONE 2:e530. 2007..pseudoobscura inversion system are most likely due to fitness differences of gene arrangement karyotypes in different environments...
