  • 1 June 1993
Two of Mendel's three laws were quickly discarded as information on the organization and transmission of genes accumulated at the beginning of this century, but his law of segregation has shownExpand

Association between a satellite DNA sequence and the responder of segregation distorter in D. melanogaster
A large array of satellite DNA sequences are always associated with the Responder (Rsp) element of Segregation Distorter in D. melanogaster. In the appropriate genetic backgrounds, Rsp causesExpand

Segregation Distortion in Drosophila melanogaster: Genetic and Molecular Analyses
The Segregation Distorter (SD) complex in the centromeric region of chromosome 2 in Drosophila melanogaster is responsible for a naturally occurring and strong system of male meiotic drive. EarlierExpand

  • Genetics
  • 1 June 1977
The experimental population genetics of Y-chromosome drive in Drosophila melanogaster is approximated by studying the behavior of T(Y;2),SD lines. These exhibit "pseudo-Y" drive through the effectiveExpand

Decay of Female Sexual Behavior Under Parthenogenesis
A laboratory strain of Drosophila mercatorum has existed for 20 years without males and therefore without natural selection operating to maintain the genetic basis of female mating behavior. TheExpand

Bufo toads and bufotenine: fact and fiction surrounding an alleged psychedelic.
This paper investigates the supposedly psychedelic Bufo toad and the allegedly psychedelic drug bufotenine, which is contained in the skin and glands of this toad. The bufo toad has held a place inExpand

The role of the transposable element hobo in the origin of endemic inversions in wild populations of Drosophila melanogaster
Evidence from in situ hybridizations of DNA from the transposable element hobo to polytene salivary gland chromosome squashes reveals that hobo occupies both cytological breakpoints of three of fourExpand

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Genetics
  • 1 June 1981
Laboratory populations of Drosophila melanogaster were challenged by pseudo-Y drive, which mimics true Y-chromosome meiotic drive through the incorporation of Segregation Distorter (SD) in a T(Y;2)Expand

Large-Scale Selective Sweep among Segregation Distorter Chromosomes in African Populations of Drosophila melanogaster
Segregation Distorter (SD) is a selfish, coadapted gene complex on chromosome 2 of Drosophila melanogaster that strongly distorts Mendelian transmission; heterozygous SD/SD + males sire almostExpand
