Escaping from an evolutionary prison cell.

PMID:  11153134     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
To a maternally transmitted parasite, male hosts are evolutionary prison cells. This is because passage into the next host generation is only possible via egg cytoplasm and not sperm. However, these parasites have come up with a neat array of evolutionary tricks to make the best of their custodial sentence.
