Specificity of cAMP signalling pathways has shown that the intracellular targeting of the individual components confers a three-dimensional context to the signalling paradigms in which they can exquisitely control the specificity of the outcome of the signal. Pivotal to this paradigm is degradation of cAMP by sequestered PDEs (phosphodiesterases). cAMP(More)
Sexual selection should cause sex differences in patterns of resource allocation. When current and future reproductive effort trade off, variation in resource acquisition might further cause sex differences in age-dependent investment, or in sensitivity to changes in resource availability over time. However, the nature and prevalence of sex differences in(More)
A small number of free-living viruses have been found to be obligately vertically transmitted, but it remains uncertain how widespread vertically transmitted viruses are and how quickly they can spread through host populations. Recent metagenomic studies have found several insects to be infected with sigma viruses (Rhabdoviridae). Here, we report that sigma(More)
