Characterization of androcam: A novel calcium-binding protein and a close relative of calmodulin from Drosophila melanogaster
The Androcam gene was originally isolated by Fyrberg et al. (1994), using reduced stringency cDNA library screening with a calmodulin (CaM) probe from our lab. The derived protein sequence of the new gene is 85% similar ...
Does more choice equal a better choice? Courtship behavior, mating propensity and female fitness in relation to the number and density of potential partners
The good genes hypothesis predicts that females discriminate among potential mates on the basis of their genetic quality. We measured the indirect benefits received by females with different levels of choice---from no ...
