Abstract: Gene discovery has important implications for investigating phenotypic trait evolution, adaptation, and speciation. Male reproductive tissues, such as accessory glands (AGs), are hotspots for recruitment of novel genes that diverge rapidly even among closely related species/populations. These genes synthesize seminal fluid proteins that often affect post-copulatory sexual selection—they can mediate male-male sperm competition, ejaculate-female interactions that modify female remating and even influence reprodu… Show more
