  • We have obtained sequence polymorphism data from 13 genes belonging to 5 gene families in Drosophila melanogaster where the K(a)/K(s) between copies is greater than 1. Twelve of these 13 loci are X-linked. In general, there is evidence of purifying selection in all families, as inferred both from levels of silent and replacement variation and insertion/deletion variation, suggesting that the loci are likely functional. Shared polymorphisms indicative of gene conversion between paralogs are rare… CONTINUE READING
