    Seven species of Volvocaceae were recorded in the lower Vistula River and its oxbow lakes, including Pleodorina californica for the first time in Poland. Three species - Eudorina cylindrica, E. illinoisensis and E. unicocca - were found in the Polish Vistula River in the 1960s and 1970s, as well...

    Sex determination in honeybees (Apis mellifera) is governed by heterozygosity at a single locus harbouring the complementary sex determiner (csd) gene, in contrast to the well-studied sex chromosome system of Drosophila melanogaster. Bees heterozygous at csd are females, whereas homozygotes and...

    Neurogenetic analyses in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster revealed that gendered behaviors, including courtship, are underpinned by sexually dimorphic neural circuitries, whose development is directed in a sex-specific manner by transcription factor genes, fruitless ( fru) and doublesex (...

    The article focuses on the translational inhibition of male-specific msl-2 messenger RNA by the female-specific protein. The translation is said to be crucial for X-chromosome dosage compensation in Drosophila melanogaster. The dosage compensation of sex chromosomes has equalized the expression...

    If germline mutations arise because of replication errors, the mutation rate may differ between males and females given that they differ in their number of germ cell divisions. As males of many higher organisms produce more gametes than females, this has led to the idea of “male-driven...

    The Drosophila fruitless (fru) gene product Fru has been postulated to be a neural sex determination factor that directs development of the central nervous system (CNS), thereby producing male-typical courtship behaviour and inducing male-specific muscle. Male-specific Fru protein is expressed...

    Sex chromosome dosage compensation in Drosophila provides a model for understanding how chromatin organization can modulate coordinate gene regulation. Male Drosophila increase the transcript levels of genes on the single male X approximately two-fold to equal the gene expression in females,...

    An appreciable fraction of the Drosophila melanogaster genome is dedicated to male fertility. One approach to characterizing this subset of the genome is through the study of male-sterile mutations. We studied the relation between vital and male-fertility genes in three large autosomal regions...

    Gene transposition puts a new gene copy in a novel genomic environment. Moreover, genes moving between the autosomes and the X chromosome experience change in several evolutionary parameters. Previous studies of gene transposition have not utilized the phylogenetic framework that becomes...
