Individual Variation in Social Behaviours of Male Lab-reared Prairie voles (Microtus ochrogaster) is Non-heritable and Weakly Associated with V1aR Density

Scientific Reports, 8(1), 1396.

By: A. Vogel, H. Patisaul*, S. Arambula, F. Tiezzi & L. McGraw*

Contributors: A. Vogel, H. Patisaul*, S. Arambula, F. Tiezzi & L. McGraw*

MeSH headings : Animals; Arvicolinae / physiology; Basal Forebrain / metabolism; Female; Male; Mating Preference, Animal; Pair Bond; Receptors, Vasopressin / metabolism; Social Behavior
TL;DR: Heritability estimates of variation in partner preference were low, yet heritability estimates for V1aR expression were high, indicating that the extensive variation in Partner preference observed within this population is due largely to environmental plasticity. (via Semantic Scholar)

Relationship Between Sequence Homology, Genome Architecture, and Meiotic Behavior of the Sex Chromosomes in North American Voles

GENETICS, 210(1), 83–97.

By: B. Dumont n, C. Williams n, B. Ng*, V. Horncastle*, C. Chambers*, L. McGraw n, D. Adams*, T. Mackay n, M. Breen n

author keywords: pseudoautosomal region; Microtus heterochromatin; telomeric repeats; meiotic synapsis
MeSH headings : Animals; Arvicolinae / genetics; Chromosome Segregation / genetics; Genomics / methods; Meiosis / genetics; North America; Pseudoautosomal Regions / genetics; Sequence Analysis, DNA / methods; Sequence Homology, Nucleic Acid; Sex Chromosomes / genetics; Telomere / genetics; Telomere-Binding Proteins / genetics; X Chromosome / genetics; Y Chromosome / genetics
TL;DR: Key conditions required to sustain the standard program of X/Y synapsis at meiosis are suggested and an intriguing connection between heterochromatic repeat architecture and noncanonical, asynaptic mechanisms of sex chromosome segregation in voles is revealed. (via Semantic Scholar)

On a matter of seminal importance

BIOESSAYS, 37(2), 142–147.

By: L. McGraw n, S. Suarez* & M. Wolfner*

author keywords: accessory sex glands; insect fertility; mammalian fertility; offspring health; reproduction; reproductive tract physiology; seminal proteins
MeSH headings : Animals; Female; Humans; Male; Mice; Reproduction / physiology; Semen / metabolism; Seminal Plasma Proteins / metabolism
TL;DR: The studies suggest that the actions of seminal plasma components are important to understand, and also to consider in future development of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) for humans, farm species and endangered species of mammals. (via Semantic Scholar)

BAC-Based Sequencing of Behaviorally-Relevant Genes in the Prairie Vole

PLOS ONE, 7(1).

By: L. McGraw*, J. Davis*, P. Thomas*, L. Young* & J. Thomas

MeSH headings : Amino Acid Sequence; Animals; Arvicolinae / genetics; Arvicolinae / physiology; Behavior, Animal / physiology; Chromosomes, Artificial, Bacterial / genetics; Gene Frequency; Genes / physiology; Genetic Variation / physiology; INDEL Mutation / physiology; Phylogeny; Polymorphism, Single Nucleotide / physiology; Segmental Duplications, Genomic; Sequence Alignment; Sequence Analysis, DNA / methods
TL;DR: The BAC-based targeted sequencing of behaviorally-relevant genes and flanking regions in the prairie vole provides the genomic resources necessary for the molecular and genetic characterization of a high-priority set of candidate genes for regulating social behavior in the Prairie vole.
