M.L.Wayne, M.Telonis-Scott, L.M.Bono, L.Harshman, A.Kopp, S.V.Nuzhdin, L.M.McIntyre, Simpler mode of inheritance of transcription variation in male Drosophila melanogaster, (Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 104: 18579-18582; 2007).
The authors used Agilent oligonucleotide arrays (as in McIntyre et al. 2006) to assay gene expression in nine isogenic D. melanogaster strains from Winters, CA, as well as their F1 hybrid offspring in a full diallel design. There were a total of 12,850 genes with unique transcripts on the array, but only those detected as expressed in at least one of the sexes were used for analysis (total = 9,312). Data presented in Sebida are from Supplemental Dataset 1.
For Sebida, we use the author's classification from ANOVA analysis.
Genes with significantly different expression between the sexes are listed as having "male" or "female" bias.
If the difference was not significant, they are listed as "unbiased".
Additionally, Wayne et al. report if expression was detected in both sexes, or if it was limited to one sex.
This data is also provided in Sebida, where detection is given as "male", "female", or "both".
Note: in most cases, a gene with sex-limited detection also shows significant sex bias. However, this is not always the case. For example, it is possible for a gene to be detected only in females, but still be listed as "unbiased".
