Phylogenetic analyses of DSX homologues. AD Multiple sequence alignment of DSX protein isoforms in Lepidoptera. The sequences are divided into common male and female region (A), F1 and F2 female-specific region (B and C, respectively) and male-specific region (D). The DNA binding (OD1) and oligomerisation (OD2) domains are boxed and S. frugiperda DSX protein is highlighted in red. E. Phylogenetic tree based on the combined OD1 and OD2 DSX protein sequences in Lepidoptera and D. melanogaster. Bootstrap support is indicated above each branch. F. Schematic representation of Sfdsx gene splicing. The minimal sex-specific splicing module, spanning exons 2 to 5 is highlighted. Differential splicing is indicated above (F1 and F2 isoforms) and below (M splice form) the gene
