Population genetics of tandem trypsin inhibitor genes in Arabidopsis species with contrasting ecology and life history.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Duplicated genes are important in the evolution and ecology of plant-defences because herbivore and pathogen attack can be countered via functional diversification at two levels: among duplicated loci and within loci. We explore molecular sequence variation for two members of a defence-related gene family, Arabidopsis thaliana trypsin inhibitors (ATTI), in A. thaliana and a closely related species, A. lyrata subspp. petraea. A worldwide sample of the inbreeding annual A. thaliana had less genetic variation at two ATTI loci (piTOTAL
