Caenorhabditis elegans genes sma-2, sma-3, and sma-4 define a conserved family of transforming growth factor beta pathway components.
Although transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) superfamily ligands play critical roles in diverse developmental processes, how cells transduce signals from these ligands is still poorlyExpand

INBREEDING AND OUTBREEDING DEPRESSION IN CAENORHABDITIS NEMATODES
Abstract The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans reproduces primarily by self-fertilization of hermaphrodites, yet males are present at low frequencies in natural populations (androdioecy). The ancestralExpand

Insights Into Species Divergence and the Evolution of Hermaphroditism From Fertile Interspecies Hybrids of Caenorhabditis Nematodes
The architecture of both phenotypic variation and reproductive isolation are important problems in evolutionary genetics. The nematode genus Caenorhabditis includes both gonochoristic (male/female)Expand

Comparison of C. elegans and C. briggsae Genome Sequences Reveals Extensive Conservation of Chromosome Organization and Synteny
To determine whether the distinctive features of Caenorhabditis elegans chromosomal organization are shared with the C. briggsae genome, we constructed a single nucleotide polymorphism–based geneticExpand

Caenorhabditis briggsae Recombinant Inbred Line Genotypes Reveal Inter-Strain Incompatibility and the Evolution of Recombination
The nematode Caenorhabditis briggsae is an emerging model organism that allows evolutionary comparisons with C. elegans and exploration of its own unique biological attributes. To produce aExpand

High Nucleotide Polymorphism and Rapid Decay of Linkage Disequilibrium in Wild Populations of Caenorhabditis remanei
The common ancestor of the self-fertilizing nematodes Caenorhabditis elegans and C. briggsae must have reproduced by obligate outcrossing, like most species in this genus. However, we have only aExpand

REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATION IN RHABDITIDAE (NEMATODA: SECERNENTEA); MECHANISMS THAT ISOLATE SIX SPECIES OF THREE GENERA
We have attempted interspecific hybridizations among six species of rhabditid nematodes: Caenorhabditis elegans, Caenorhabditis briggsae, Caenorhabditis remanei, Caenorhabditis sp. v, Rhabditis sp.,Expand

  • 1 July 2002
Haldane's rule in C. briggsae x C. remanei broods was caused by sexual transformation; XX and XO hybrids were female. C. briggsae and C. remanei variants that partially suppress hybrid sexualExpand

Micronuclear genome organization in Euplotes crassus: a transposonlike element is removed during macronuclear development.
After mating, hypotrichous ciliated protozoa transform a set of their micronuclear chromosomes into thousands of short, linear DNA molecules that form the macronuclear genome. To examine micronuclearExpand

A toolkit for rapid gene mapping in the nematode Caenorhabditis briggsae
BackgroundThe nematode C. briggsae serves as a useful model organism for comparative analysis of developmental and behavioral processes. The amenability of C. briggsae to genetic manipulations andExpand
