Non-Coding Changes Cause Sex-Specific Wing Size Differences between Closely Related Species of Nasonia

Change in doublesex expression due to ws1.

Expression level change was estimated by quantitative RT–PCR. Note that the vitripennis dsx protein-coding region is present in both genotypes (i.e., the giraulti region of ws1gV_40kb does not include the dsx coding sequence). Mean expression ratios ± standard errors are shown. Expression ratios greater than 1 indicate higher male dsx (dsxM) transcript level in ws1vV than in ws1gV_40kb. Sample size indicates number of independent biological replicates.
