The Nop60B gene of Drosophila encodes an essential nucleolar protein that functions in yeast
Abstract The Cbf5 protein of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was originally identified as a low-affinity centromeric DNA-binding protein, and cbf5 mutants have a defect in rRNA synthesis. A closely relatedExpand

Male dominance and variation in fleshy head ornamentation in Wild Turkeys
Male characteristics used by females in choosing mates for good genes may also reflect outcomes of male-male competition. The extravagantly ornamented Wild Turkey Meleagris gallopavo is anExpand

Effects of parasitic infection on mate sampling by female wild turkeys (Meleagris gallopavo): should infected females be more or less choosy?
Investigations of parasite-mediated sexual selection have concentrated on the effects of parasites on males. Differences in female susceptibility to parasitic infection may also cause variation inExpand

Production of an MHC class II B molecular probe in the turkey, Meleagris gallopavo.
Genetic selection for disease resistance may be facilitated by molecular markers of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) of poultry. We describe the first sequence variation documented at theExpand
