Allozyme variation at 35 gene loci is investigated in 161 specimens of the uniparental Caucasian lizard Lacerta dahli from several locations in Armenia and Georgia. All individuals are heterozygotic at 12 loci, and homozygotic at 21 loci. Variation at two loci results in five uniparental clones. One clone is widespread whereas four are geographically restricted and are represented by only one or two individuals. Because successful formation of uniparental clones is rare, and because the… Expand
Clonal Diversity and Clone Formation in the Parthenogenetic Caucasian Rock Lizard Darevskia dahli
TLDR
A new approach based on the detection and comparison of genotype- specific markers formed by combinations of parental-specific markers was developed and used to identify at least three hybridization founder events that resulted in the initial formation of one major and two rare clones in Darevskia dahli. Expand
The origin of multiple clones in the parthenogenetic lizard species Darevskia rostombekowi
TLDR
This work evaluates variation at three variable microsatellite loci for 42 specimens of D. rostombekowi from four populations in Armenia to reject the hypothesis of a single hybridization founder event that resulted in the initial formation of one major clone. Expand

TLDR
The available data demonstrate that microsatellite mutations as well as point mutations in flanking regions make significant contribution in genome diversity of, at least some, clonaly reproduced vertebrates. Expand
Origin, clonal diversity, and evolution of the parthenogenetic lizard Darevskia unisexualis
TLDR
Analysis of microsatellites and single nucleotide polymorphisms from the three species yields estimates of clonal diversity and tests the hypothesis of a single origin for D. unisexualis, finding post-formation mutations best explain the less common clones. Expand
Multiple interspecific hybridization and microsatellite mutations provide clonal diversity in the parthenogenetic rock lizard Darevskia armeniaca
TLDR
This study identifies the most effective molecular markers for elucidating the origins of clonal diversity in other unisexual species that arose via interspecific hybridization through parthenogenetic clonal lineages. Expand
Coincidence of genotypes at two loci in two parthenogenetic rock lizards: how backcrosses might trigger adaptive speciation
TLDR
This observation and overall study of the distribution of the microsatellite genotypes suggests that both D. armeniaca and D. dahli descend from very few, possibly single original hybridization event, most likely D. portschinskii, hence the hypothesis of different paternal species for these two forms is rejected.

Allozyme Variation Patterns and Multiple Hybridization Origins: Clonal Variation Among Four Sibling Parthenogenetic Caucasian Rock Lizards
TLDR
Allozyme electrophoresis of four sibling parthenogenetic Caucasian rock lizards Darevskia unisexualis, D.raddei and D.valentini are the parental species of all four parthenogens, and variation patterns in DarevSkia were summarized. Expand
Limited genetic variation in Lacerta mixta and its parthenogenetic daughter species: evidence from cytochrome b and ATPase 6 gene DNA sequences
TLDR
Little mtDNA variation was observed among populations of the bisexual Caucasian rock lizard Lacerta mixta and unisexual L. dahli and L. armeniaca and the lack of variation in the unisexuals was attributed to the restricted variation among the maternal parents, limited involvement of females in the hybridization, and recent origin. Expand
Genetic Variation and De Novo Mutations in the Parthenogenetic Caucasian Rock Lizard Darevskia unisexualis
TLDR
Sequencing of the mutant alleles has shown that most mutations occur via deletion or insertion of single microsatellite repeat being identical in all offspring of the family, which indicates that such mutations emerge at the early stages of embryogenesis. Expand
Revealing of allelic polymorphism in the populations of parthenogenetic lizards Darevskia dahli (Lacertidae) using locus-specific PCR
TLDR
Locus-specific PCR was used to study the genetic polymorphism in three populations of parthenogenetic lizard species Darevskia dahli, and it was demonstrated that all the lizards examined were heterozygous at these loci. Expand

Clonal variation in the parthenogenetic rock lizard Lacerta armeniaca.
TLDR
The low level of variation in this species suggests a recent restricted origin, involving few parental individuals, as well as one widespread clone, one restricted clone, and one apparently restricted clone. Expand
THE ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION OF PARTHENOGENESIS IN HETERONOTIA BINOEI (GEKKONIDAE): EXTENSIVE GENOTYPIC DIVERSITY AMONG PARTHENOGENS
TLDR
The genetic structure of this geographically widespread parthenogen suggests the hypothesis that the persistence and spread of the unisexual lineages is facilitated by genotypic diversity. Expand
The Parthenogenetic Rock Lizard Lacerta unisexualis: An Example of Limited Genetic Polymorphism
Abstract. Protein electrophoresis of Lacerta unisexualis from three populations found that 21 of 36 allozyme loci were homozygous, while 14 expressed fixed heterozygotes and one locus was variable.Expand
Allozyme variation in three closely related species of Caucasian rock lizards (Lacerta)
TLDR
Indices of genetic variability for species having disjunct distributions were lower than in species with contiguous distributions, similar to the case of insular populations, which have lower values than do mainland populations. Expand
The origin and evolution of parthenogenesis in Heteronotia binoei (Gekkonidae): evidence for recent and localized origins of widespread clones.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis revealed that the widespread type of mtDNA in the parthenogens is most closely related to mtDNAs from western populations of the "CA6" sexual parent, suggesting that these parthenogenetic clones arose recently within a small geographic area, most probably in Western Australia.

Electrophoretic analysis of proteins coded by 19 loci in the hybrid parthenogenetic lizard C. neomexicanus and its parental species, C. tigris marmoratus and C. inornatus, revealed two clones whichExpand
The material ancestry and approximate age of parthenogenetic species of Caucasian rock lizards (Lacerta: Lacertidae)
TLDR
The patterns of mtDNA variation in Lacerta are very similar to those in Cnemidophorus and Heteronotia, establishing recent and geographically restricted origins as a general feature of parthenogenetic lizards. Expand
Ecological Implications of Clonal Diversity in Parthenogenetic Morphospecies
TLDR
It is suggested that the degree ofClonal differentiation, determined by the mode of clonal origin, is important in determining whether or not selection occurs among sympatric clones. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that L. raddei and L. nairensis may not be separate species, a finding which has important implications for determining the origins of some parthenogenetic Lacerta. Expand
