A selective sweep in or near the Silene latifolia X-linked gene SlssX.

Abstract:

The most prominent feature of Y chromosomes is that they do not recombine and are usually genetically degenerate, containing only a few genes. White campion Silene latifolia has evolved sex chromosomes relatively recently, probably within the last 10-15 million years. Perhaps due to its recent origin, the Y chromosome in this species has not completely degenerated and most isolated X-linked genes have intact Y-linked homologues. A gene encoding a protein with strong homology to spermidine syn...
