Alternative Starts of Transcription, Several Paralogues, and Almost-Fixed Interspecific Differences of the Gene fruitless in a Hemimetabolous Insect


In fruit flies, the gene fruitless (fru) governs the establishment of the potential for male sexual behavior. We partially cloned fru from a hemimetabolous insect for the first time and we compared fru among three closely related and acoustically communicating grasshopper species: Chorthippus biguttulus, C. brunneus, and C. mollis.
