- 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 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...
