Abstract

Five newly identified sex-biased transcripts in Drosophila are full of surprises: although they are found in fly heads, and manipulating two of them affects mating behaviors, their genes are expressed sex-specifically in non-neural tissues. The way these genes are regulated suggests new complexities in the sex determination pathway.
