Recent expansion of the non-recombining sex-linked region on Silene latifolia sex chromosomes

Abstract:

Evolution of a non-recombining sex-specific region on the Y(or W)-chromosome (NRY) is a key step in sex chromosome evolution, but how recombination suppression evolves is not well understood. Studies in many different organisms indicated that NRY evolution often involves several expansion steps. Why such NRY expansions occur remains unclear, though it is though that they are likely driven by sexually antagonistic selection. This paper describes a recent NRY expansion due to shift of the pseud...
