In fact, during the early cleavage divisions, the initial stock of paternal H3. In chd1 mutant eggs, paternal chromatin assembly seems to occur, at least partially, but the shape of the improperly decondensed male nucleus appears highly variable [ 77 , 95 ].

Cytoplasmic Incompatibility and Sperm Cyst Infection in Different Drosophila-Wolbachia Associations
This contradiction may be explained by the use of D. We thank Bill Etges and Scott Pitnick for comments on an early version of the manuscript. Conclusion Competing interests Funding Acknowledgements References. Traffic 13 , — Sperm entry and sperm activation In teleost fishes, cephalopods and insects, eggs have one or several micropyles [ 32 ]. The needle-shaped sperm nucleus is still packaged with SNBPs green and two centrioles are visible at the junction with the sperm tail:

Fitch and Wakimoto proposed that the snky phenotype resulted from a defect in sperm plasma membrane breakdown around the sperm head. Glycobiology 11 , 37R—43R. Chromosomal elements evolve at different rates in the Drosophila genome. The biparental origin of the zygotic centrosome probably explains why unfertilized D. Thus, the passage of the male gamete through the micropyle does not involve a typical acrosomal reaction and the associated mechanism remains largely unknown. It assumes the existence of two bacterial functions, modification mod that occurs during sperm development and rescue resc , which takes place in the egg. Genes showing large copy number increases in D.
We used two methods to estimate the proportion of highly conserved genes present in the assembly. CI thus favours the spreading of Wolbachia in fly populations through the elimination of uninfected eggs. The spermatozoon enters the egg through the micropyle arrow. Alternatively, the distribution of selection coefficients for new amino acid variants may evolve at the gene level. Genomic analysis of adaptive differentiation in Drosophila melanogaster.
