Molecular marker suggests rapid changes of sex-determining mechanisms in Australian dragon lizards

Ezaz, Tariq; Quinn, Alexander E; Sarre, Stephen; O'Meally, Denis; Georges, Arthur; Graves, Jennifer


Distribution of sex-determining mechanisms across Australian agamids shows no clear phylogenetic segregation, suggesting multiple transitions between temperature-dependent (TSD) and genotypic sex determination (GSD). These taxa thus present an excellent opportunity for studying the evolution of sex chromosomes, and evolutionary transitions between TSD and GSD. Here we report the hybridization of a 3 kb genomic sequence (PvZW3) that marks the Z and W microchromosomes of the Australian central...[Show more]
