Flashcards in Sex chromosomes Deck (3)
What did Lahn and Page (1999) describe?
Looked at 19 genes on the Y with homologues on the X, found four major categories of gene based on divergence times, indicates four major inversions.
In D. melanogaster, markers were used to maintain chromosome 2 and 3 in males so there was no recombination. Male fitness after 35 generations was reduced, adult male survival = 2 days post-eclosion (emergence from pupa). Who found this?
