BmPMFBP1 regulates the development of eupyrene sperm in the silkworm, Bombyx mori

This article was originally published here PLoS Genet. 2022 Mar 21;18(3):e1010131. doi: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1010131. Online ahead of print. ABSTRACT Sperm deliver the male complement of DNA to the ovum, and thus play a key role in sexual reproduction. Accordingly, spermatogenesis has outstanding significance in fields as disparate as infertility treatments and…

Butterfly eyespots evolved via cooption of an ancestral gene-regulatory network that also patterns antennae, legs, and wings

Although the hypothesis of gene-regulatory network (GRN) cooption is a plausible model to explain the origin of morphological novelties (1), there has been limited empirical evidence to show that this mechanism led to the origin of any novel trait. Several hypotheses have been proposed for the origin of butterfly eyespots,…
