Increased production of piRNAs from euchromatic clusters and genes in Anopheles gambiae compared with Drosophila melanogaster
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2015-11-27)
Background Specific genomic loci, termed Piwi-interacting RNA (piRNA) clusters, manufacture piRNAs that serve as guides for the inactivation of complementary transposable elements (TEs). The piRNA pathway has been ...
Arm-specific dynamics of chromosome evolution in malaria mosquitoes
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2011-04-07)
Molecular evolution of a gene cluster of serine proteases expressed in the Anopheles gambiae female reproductive tract
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2011-03-19)
Genome mapping and characterization of the Anopheles gambiae heterochromatin
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2010-08-04)
Background Heterochromatin plays an important role in chromosome function and gene regulation. Despite the availability of polytene chromosomes and genome sequence, the heterochromatin of the major malaria vector Anopheles ...
Six novel Y chromosome genes in Anopheles mosquitoes discovered by independently sequencing males and females
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2013-04-23)
Background Y chromosomes are responsible for the initiation of male development, male fertility, and other male-related functions in diverse species. However, Y genes are rarely characterized outside a few model species ...
