- Mild heat stress at a young age in Drosophila melanogaster leads to increased Hsp70 synthesis after stress exposure later in lifeTorsten Nygaard Kristensen
Aarhus Centre for Environmental Stress Research ACES, Department of Ecology and Genetics, University of Aarhus, Building 540, Ny Munkegade, DK 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark
J Genet 82:89-94. 2003..The importance of an Hsp70 upregulation (throughout life) in explaining the phenomenon of hormesis is discussed, together with alternative hypotheses, and suggestions for further studies...
- Genome-wide analysis on inbreeding effects on gene expression in Drosophila melanogasterTorsten Nygaard Kristensen
Aarhus Centre for Environmental Stress Research, Department of Ecology and Genetics, University of Aarhus, Denmark
Genetics 171:157-67. 2005..Genes being differentially expressed with inbreeding are disproportionately involved in metabolism and stress responses, suggesting that inbreeding acts like an environmental stress factor...
- Can artificially selected phenotypes influence a component of field fitness? Thermal selection and fly performance under thermal extremesTorsten Nygaard Kristensen
Center for Environmental Stress and Adaptation Research, Department of Genetics, The University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Proc Biol Sci 274:771-8. 2007..Therefore, lines selected artificially not only behaved partly as expected based on laboratory assays but also evolved patterns only evident in the field releases...
- Inbreeding by environmental interactions affect gene expression in Drosophila melanogasterTorsten Nygaard Kristensen
Aarhus Centre for Environmental Stress Research ACES, Department of Ecology and Genetics, University of Aarhus, Denmark
Genetics 173:1329-36. 2006....
- Trait associations across evolutionary time within a drosophila phylogeny: correlated selection or genetic constraint?Vanessa Kellermann
Department of Bioscience, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark Department of Biological Sciences, Monash University, Victoria, Australia
PLoS ONE 8:e72072. 2013..These results suggest trait associations are primarily driven by correlated selection rather than genetic interactions, highlighting that such interactions are unlikely to limit evolution of stress resistance. ..
- Metabolomic signatures of inbreeding at benign and stressful temperatures in Drosophila melanogasterKamilla Sofie Pedersen
Department of Biological Sciences, University of Aarhus, DK 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark
Genetics 180:1233-43. 2008....
- Efficiency of selection, as measured by single nucleotide polymorphism variation, is dependent on inbreeding rate in Drosophila melanogasterDitte Demontis
Department of Biological Sciences, Ecology and Genetics, Aarhus University, Ny Munkegade, Building 1540, DK 8000 Arhus C, Denmark
Mol Ecol 18:4551-63. 2009..In addition, this has more general implications for the importance of selection in maintaining genetic variation...
- Experimental Evolution under Fluctuating Thermal Conditions Does Not Reproduce Patterns of Adaptive Clinal Differentiation in Drosophila melanogasterVanessa Kellermann
Department of Bioscience, Aarhus University, Ny Munkegade 114 116, DK 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark
Am Nat 186:582-93. 2015..These findings highlight the complexity of factors affecting trait evolution in natural populations and indicate that caution is required when inferring likely evolutionary responses from the outcome of experimental evolution studies. ..
- Phylogenetic constraints in key functional traits behind species' climate niches: patterns of desiccation and cold resistance across 95 Drosophila speciesVanessa Kellermann
Department of Bioscience, Aarhus University, Ny Munkegade 116, DK 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark
Evolution 66:3377-89. 2012..Together these findings suggest species distributions are governed by evolutionarily conservative climate responses, with limited scope for rapid adaptive responses to future climate change...
