We used recombination rate estimates from D. melanogaster for both species, as recombination data for D. simulans are sparse. Although recombination rates in D. simulans may differ (they are, on average, Ϸ30% higher than in D. melanogaster; see ref. 28), subtle local changes in recombi- nation rate are unlikely to lead to misclassification of loci into high vs. low recombination regions. Changes in recombination rate that do result in misclassification likely contribute noise to our analysis, but this would obscure rather than create the Statistical Tests. For nonnormally distributed variables, we used
nonparametric Spearman rank correlations to test for associa- tions and permutation t tests (with null distributions generated by Ն10,000 randomization of the data) to test for differences between means.

Does Linkage Limit Protein Evolution?
We first ask whether linkage
limits protein adaptation. Rates of adaptive protein evolution, if limited by interference, should be relatively constrained in regions of low versus high recombination. We therefore test for an excess (paucity) of rapid evolution in regions of high (low) recombination. It is important to note, however, that slowly evolving genes (those mostly subject to purifying selection) should occur in all recombinational environments. A plot of dN vs. recombination should thus reveal a wedge-shaped distribu- tion, with slowly evolving genes in regions of low recombination and both slowly and rapidly evolving genes in regions of high N, the rate of amino acid substitution (a), and dS, the rate of silent substitution (b), vs. recombination rate (in cM͞kb). Black and gray circles are recombination. Fig. 1a confirms this prediction; genes in high putative Acp’s and non-Acp’s, respectively.
recombination environments show both a higher mean and variance of dN values than those in low recombination environ- ments (dN,high ϭ 0.031 Ϯ 0.003; dN,low ϭ 0.019 Ϯ 0.002; t test ϭ data (24.4%), our results do not depend on some peculiarity of 2.780, P ϭ 0.007, F151,103 ϭ 2.524, P Ͻ 0.0001; a qualitatively these genes other than their rapid evolution. Not surprisingly, if similar pattern appears in a plot of ddS vs. recombination rate, all candidate Acp’s are excluded from the analysis, too few rapidly evolving genes remain to detect a pattern. But within We can eliminate three alternative explanations for this Acp’s, rapid protein evolution is also largely confined to regions regional difference in evolutionary rates. First, this wedge pat- of high recombination (dN,high ϭ 0.057 Ϯ 0.007; dN,low ϭ 0.029 Ϯ tern is not caused by regional differences in mutational input (as 0.007; t test ϭ 2.369, P ϭ 0.017; F44,18 ϭ 2.884, P ϭ 0.013; dS,high might be seen, e.g., if recombination were mutagenic) as such ϭ 0.111 Ϯ 0.011; dS,low ϭ 0.101 Ϯ 0.013; t test ϭ 0.514, P ϭ 0.601; differences would produce a similar pattern for dS.

We ask whether evolution at strongly selected regions of low recombination (where Ne is reduced by interfer- (amino acid) sites limits the efficacy of selection at tightly linked, ence). Other studies have noted such elevated rates of protein weakly selected (synonymous) sites. Synonymous sites are not divergence in low recombination regions, likely because, in selectively equivalent, as certain synonymous codons (‘‘optimal’’ contrast to our data set, most of the genes in these studies are or ‘‘preferred’’ codons) are used more frequently than others, relatively conserved and therefore subject mainly to purifying apparently because of selection for translational efficiency and selection (29–32). Although many of the genes in this study are accuracy (33–36). But selection coefficients acting on alternative also relatively conserved, the signal of interference on adaptive synonymous codons are on the order of 1͞Ne, i.e., approaching evolution detected here (elevated dN in high recombination the limits of selection (36).

that this is indeed the case. As the rate of amino acid substitution increases, third position GC-content decreases significantly (dN, D. melanogaster: rs ϭ Ϫ0.540, P Ͻ 0.0001; dN, D. simulans: rs ϭ Ϫ0.549, P Ͻ 0.0001; ddS, D. melanogaster: rs ϭ Ϫ0.569, P Ͻ 0.0001; ddS, D. simulans: rs ϭ Ϫ0.584, P Ͻ 0.0001).
Because Acp’s as a class show both low optimal codon usage (19) and rapid protein evolution (19, 20), it is possible that the above findings are entirely due to some special property of these genes. We can rule out this possibility, however. The correlation between dN and optimal codon usage remains even when Acp’s are excluded from the analysis (D. melanogaster: rs ϭ Ϫ0.452, P Ͻ 0.0001; D. simulans: rs ϭ Ϫ0.431, P Ͻ 0.0001). Moreover, the correlation exists, and is in fact stronger, within Acp’s (D. melanogaster: rs ϭ Ϫ0.695, P Ͻ 0.0001; D. simulans: rs ϭ Ϫ0.711, P Ͻ 0.0001). This stronger correlation probably reflects the fact that other factors known to contribute to variation in optimal codon usage—tissue specificity, gene expression level, and gene length (reviewed in refs. 34 and 35)—are partially controlled within Acp’s, as these genes share a common tissue type (male accessory glands), similar (high) expression levels, and similar Because there is reason to believe that both protein evolution and optimal codon usage are related to gene length (44, 45) and recombination rate (refs. 25 and 45, and see above), we tested the possibility that the correlation between dN and Fop is an artifact of one of these other relationships. We find that optimal codon usage is significantly correlated with gene length (D. melano- gaster: rs ϭ Ϫ0.142, P ϭ 0.0287; D. simulans: rs ϭ Ϫ0.129, P ϭ 0.0463), as seen in previous studies (42, 43), but not with recombination (D. melanogaster: rs ϭ Ϫ0.066, P Ͼ 0.05; D. simulans: rs ϭ 0.081, P Ͼ 0.05). [The previously reported correlation between optimal codon usage and recombination is weak and detected in a much larger data set than ours (26, 45).] To distinguish the effects of gene length and protein evolution on optimal codon usage, we estimated partial correlation coef- ficients. Both relationships persist, but the correlation between dN and Fop is much stronger (partial r for gene length vs. dN in Fop, the frequency of optimal codon usage, vs. dN in D. melanogaster D. melanogaster: Ϫ0.163 vs. Ϫ0.505; in D. simulans: Ϫ0.152 vs.

Ϫ0.518; gene length and dN are log-transformed; P Ͻ 0.05 substitutions reduces the rate of substitution of linked weakly Several workers (19, 46, 47) have observed high nonoptimal favored mutations. This effect is caused by genetic hitchhiking; codon usage in rapidly evolving genes, but suggested relaxation as the frequency of hitchhiking increases, weakly selected linked of selective constraints as the cause. These relaxed constraints sites behave more neutrally and thus come to more closely reflect explanations come in two flavors. The first invokes codon- the mutational spectrum. Because there are more ways, on specific constraints. Akashi (48) has argued that selection for average, to mutate to nonoptimal codons, the net effect translational accuracy (i.e., selection against misincorporation of of hitchhiking is to increase the fixation rate of nonoptimal amino acids) should be strongest at functionally important residues. Consistent with this, he found that evolutionarily conserved residues tend to use preferred codons, which are less We test this prediction by asking whether the frequency of often mistranslated (48). This explanation alone cannot account optimal codon usage (Fop) decays as the rate of protein evolution for the results reported here, because even conserved sites in our increases. As Fig. 2 shows, Fop declines sharply as dN increases rapidly evolving genes show poor optimal codon usage. After (statistics identical for both species: rs ϭ Ϫ0.559, P Ͻ 0.0001; the expunging all divergent codons from the genes in our data, we same patterns appear using ddS ratios, not shown). dS shows find that the relationship between F a weak positive correlation with F op and dN is unchanged (D. op (D. melanogaster: rs ϭ 0.172, P Ͻ 0.0061; D. simulans: r s ϭ Ϫ0.546, P Ͻ 0.0001; D. simulans: rs ϭ Ϫ0.555, s ϭ 0.224, P ϭ 0.0004), but, as partial correlation analysis shows, the relationship between Fop and dN The second relaxed constraints explanation invokes gene- is independent of dS and twice as strong (D. melanogaster: partial specific constraints, in which constraints on amino acid sites and r ϭ Ϫ0.505 vs. 0.251; D. simulans: partial r ϭ Ϫ0.491 vs. 0.180).

There are three reasons to think this explanation to approach Ϸ35% (42, 43). Coding sequences are nevertheless does not explain our results. First, the rapid evolution in our data highly GC-biased, at least partly because of constraints on codon set does not appear to be caused by relaxed purifying selection, usage as virtually all preferred codons end in C or G.
