- Genomic and gene regulatory signatures of cryptozoic adaptation: Loss of blue sensitive photoreceptors through expansion of long wavelength-opsin expression in the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneumMagdalena Jackowska
Department of Biological Sciences, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI 48202 USA
Front Zool 4:24. 2007..Here, we studied the spatial regulation of the Tribolium single LW- and UV-opsin gene paralogs in comparison to that of the five opsin paralogs in the retina of Drosophila melanogaster...
