TL;DR: The most likely explanation for why Lsp1 α is not dosage compensated is that the gene has not evolved a mechanism to independently recruit theMSL complex, possibly because of its recent evolutionary origin, and because there appears to be a low level of bound MSL complex in a nearby gene that is active in the same tissue.

By: R. Henry*, B. Tews*, X. Li* & M. Scott*

TL;DR: This study shows that insertion of either roX1 or roX2 DNA sequences, upstream of an insulated lacZ reporter gene controlled with the constitutive armadillo promoter, results in a significant elevation of expression of lacZ in males. (via Semantic Scholar)

By: H. Fitzsimons*, R. Henry* & M. Scott*

Genetics, 140(2), 697–702.

By: G. Banks, A. Robinson, J. Kwiatowski, F. Ayala, M. Scott* & D. Kriticou

TL;DR: Phylogenetic analysis by the maximum parsimony method with bootstrap resampling of previously known Cu/Zn SOD reveals two monophyletic groups, vertebrates and insects, which suggests that the duplication detected in Ceratitis is ancient, perhaps as old as the origins of the arthropod phylum in the Cambrian more than 500 million years ago.

By: S. Zhou*, Y. Yang*, M. Scott*, A. Pannuti*, K. Fehr*, A. Eisen*, E. Koonin*, D. Fouts* ...

TL;DR: The observations suggest that MSL‐2 may be the target of the master regulatory gene Sxl and provide the basic elements of a working hypothesis on the function of MSl‐2 in mediating the 2‐fold increase in transcription that is characteristic of dosage compensation. (via Semantic Scholar)
