Cytonuclear disequilibria in wild populations of rabbit ( Oryctolagus cuniculus L . ) suggest unequal allele turnover rates at the b locus


DNA sequence comparisons suggest that evolutionary rates at the rabbit IGKC1 locus can differ among allelic lineages. Here we address the question of whether population turnover rates can vary among IGKC1 alleles. We studied the distribution of sixteen IGKC1 (or b-locus) allotypes in areas comprising the aboriginal species range (Iberian peninsula). Rabbits… (More)
