Genomic background drives the divergence of duplicated amylase genes at synonymous sites in Drosophila.

Abstract

In some Drosophila species, there are two types of greatly diverged amylase (Amy) genes (Amy clusters 1 and 2), each encoding active amylase isozymes. Cluster 1 is located at the middle of its chromosomal arm, and the region has a normal local recombination rate. However, cluster 2 is near the centromere, and this region is known to have a reduced… (More)
