Analysis of Tbp paralogues behavior in spermatogenesis. a Expression of genes encoding TBP and its paralogues in the testes. CG9879 is the only testis-specific homologue of TBP; Trf and Trf2 display high expression in the testes, which remains unchanged in the mutants affecting spermatogenesis progression. Tbp and CG15398 are predominantly active in spermatogonia. The dotted lines designate the FPKM expression levels of the genes in wild-type testis. b CG9879 displays TSS-biased binding in the set of testis-specific genes. Asterisks show the significant differences (binomial test, P < 0.001). c CG9879 is frequently found in the promoter regions of direct gene targets of Can, Comr, and Mip40, unlike in the promoters of indirect gene targets. The dotted lines show the values expected by chance
