    Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Marine Biology Research Division, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, California 92037, USA
    Genetics 173:1479-86. 2006
    ..This challenges the generality of the enhancer-imbalance model for nucleolar dominance and suggests that dominance of rRNA transcription in animals may be determined by epigenetic factors as has been established in plants...

    J M Flowers
    Department of Ecology and Evolution, Stony Brook University, NY, USA
    Mol Biol Evol 24:1347-54. 2007
    ..The data suggest that adaptive evolution of G6P branch point enzymes may have special significance in metabolic adaptation...

    Walter F Eanes
    Department of Ecology and Evolution, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York 11794, USA
    Genetics 181:607-14. 2009
    ..We propose that an understanding of the evolution of tolerance to alcohols will require a system-level approach, rather than a focus on single enzymes...
  4. pmc Flux control and excess capacity in the enzymes of glycolysis and their relationship to flight metabolism in Drosophila melanogaster
    Walter F Eanes
    Department of Ecology and Evolution, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY 11794, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 103:19413-8. 2006
    ..Furthermore, enzymes catalyzing near-equilibrium reactions show strong genetic dominance down to low levels of activity. This implies considerable excess enzyme capacity for these enzymes...

    Mol Biol Evol 26:2475-86. 2009
    ..Although there is some evidence for adaptive evolution in these life-history genes, it appears that slightly deleterious polymorphisms are a major component of natural molecular variation in the flowering time network of A. thaliana...

    Jonathan M Flowers
    Department of Biology and Center for Genomics and Systems Biology, New York University, NY, USA
    Mol Biol Evol 29:675-87. 2012
    ..Our results suggest that the physical distribution of selected mutations is a primary factor that determines the genomic pattern of polymorphism in wild and domesticated rice species...

    Science 321:836-8. 2008
    ..A causal single-nucleotide polymorphism associated with andromonoecy was identified, which suggests that the a allele has been under recent positive selection and may be linked to the evolution of this sexual system...
