Undertransmission of a supernumerary chromosome segment through heterozygous females possessing B chromosomes in the grasshopper Eyprepocnemis plorans.

Abstract

The transmission ratio (ks) for a supernumerary chromosome segment was studied in a total of 54 heterozygous females collected from two Spanish natural populations of the grasshopper Eyprepocnemis plorans. Our analysis clearly demonstrated that ks is negatively dependent on the number of B chromosomes in the female. The possible mechanisms by which B… (More)
