TitleTranscriptome sequencing reveals novel candidate genes for Cardinium hertigii-caused cytoplasmic incompatibility
Study TypeOther
Abstract Endosymbionts that infect arthropods and cause cytoplasmic incompatibility (CI) manipulate the reproduction of their hosts through “modification” of sperm and “rescue” of affected sperm in symbiont-infected eggs. The molecular mechanisms responsible for CI are still unknown. To find candidate symbio .. [more]
