The comparative evolutionary biology of the sibling species, Drosophila melanogaster and D. simulans

The Quarterly Review of Biology

Jun 1, 1975

P A Parsons

Abstract

1. D. melanogaster and D. simulans are sibling species; they are morphologically almost identical and genetically very similar. Whereas their sexual behavior patterns are qualitatively similar, hybrids are rarely produced and when they are, they are sterile. 2. Although not all data are...read more

Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis

Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis is type of Chronic glomerulonephritis characterized histologically by proliferation of mesangial cells, increase in the mesangial extracellular matrix, and a thickening of the glomerular capillary walls. Discover the latest research on membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis here.

GTPases in Intracellular Trafficking

GTPases, including small ras sub-families and large dynamin are regulators of intracellular trafficking. They are implicated in vesicular transport and important for the communication within cells. Discover the latest search on GTPases in intracellular trafficking here.

Coronavirus

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, and 2019-nCov. Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans. Symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, it can lead to death. Here is the latest research on coronaviruses.

Central Nervous System Parasitic Infections

Central nervous system parasitic infections can occur when parasites invade the blood-brain barrier and can also occur in immunocompromised patients. Toxoplasma gondii is a parasite that can lead to encephalitis and other neurological symptoms. Discover the latest research central nervous system parasitic infections here.

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a viral respiratory disease of zoonotic origin caused by the SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV). Initial symptoms are flu-like and may include fever, muscle pain, lethargy symptoms, cough, sore throat, and other nonspecific symptoms. SARS may eventually lead to shortness of breath and pneumonia; either direct viral pneumonia or secondary bacterial pneumonia. DIscover the latest research on SARS here.

Carcinoma, Bronchogenic

Bronchogenic Carcinoma is a malignant lung cancer arising in the epithelium of the bronchus or bronchiole. Discover the latest research on Bronchogenic Carcinoma here.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.
