To investigate the genetic basis of differing thermotolerance in the closely related species Drosophila virilis and Drosophila lummei, which replace one another along a latitudinal cline, we characterized the hsp70 gene cluster in multiple strains of both species. In both species, all hsp70 copies cluster in a single chromosomal locus, 29C1, and each cluster includes two hsp70 genes arranged as an inverted pair, the ancestral condition. The total number of hsp70 copies is maximally seven in the… CONTINUE READING
