Convergent evolution of melanic horizontal stripes has been linked to a single locus harboring the gene agouti-related peptide 2 (agrp2). However, where and when the causal variants underlying this trait evolved and how they drove phenotypic divergence remained unknown. To test the alternative hypotheses of standing genetic variation versus de novo mutations (independently originating in each radiation), we searched for shared signals of genomic divergence at the agrp2 locus. While we discovered similar signatures of differentiation at the locus level, the haplotypes associated with stripe patterns are surprisingly different. In Lake Malawi, the highest associated alleles are located within and close to the 5' untranslated region of agrp2 and likely evolved through recent de novo mutations. In the younger Lake Victoria radiation, stripes are associated with two intronic regions overlapping with a previously reported cis-regulatory interval. The origin of these segregating haplotypes predates the Lake Victoria radiation since they are also found in more basal riverine and Lake Kivu species. This suggest that both segregating haplotypes were present as standing genetic variation at the onset of the Lake Victoria adaptive radiation with their more than 500 species and drove phenotypic divergence within the species flock. In summary, both new (Lake Malawi) or ancient (Lake Victoria) allelic variation at the same locus can fuel rapid and convergent phenotypic evolution.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-09-23T08:30:03Z</dc:date> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Meyer, Axel</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Urban, Sabine</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:issued>2020-09-17</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
