A standard nomenclature for gene designation in the Rosaceae
The plant family Rosaceae is comprised of a highly diverse group of plants, with a wide range of ornamental and agricultural uses throughout the world. Comparative genomic analyses between rosaceous species are increasingly ...
Structure analysis of the endoxylanase A gene from Penicillium purpurogenum
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2001)
Comparative genomics uncovers unique gene turnover and evolutionary rates in a gene family involved in the detection of insect cuticular pheromones
(Oxford University Press, 2016-07)
Chemoreception is an essential process for the survival and reproduction of animals. Many of the proteins responsible for recognizing and transmitting chemical stimuli in insects are encoded by genes that are members of ...
The Irx gene family in zebrafish: genomic structure, evolution and initial characterization of irx5b
Genes of the iroquois (Iro/Irx) family are highly conserved from Drosophila to mammals and they have been implicated in a number of developmental processes. In flies, the Iro genes participate in patterning events in ...
Selection and validation of reference genes for functional studies in the Calliphoridae family
The genera Cochliomyia and Chrysomya contain both obligate and saprophagous flies, which allows the comparison of different feeding habits between closely related species. Among the different strategies for comparing these ...
Annotation, phylogeny and expression analysis of the nuclear factor Y gene families in common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris)
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2015-01)
In the past decade, plant nuclear factor Y (NF-Y) genes have gained major interest due to their roles in many biological processes in plant development or adaptation to environmental conditions, particularly in the root ...
Molecular Characterization and Physical Mapping of Two Classes of 5S rDNA in the Genomes of Gymnotus sylvius and G. inaequilabiatus (Gymnotiformes, Gymnotidae)
The nucleotide sequences of the 5S rRNA multigene family and their distribution across the karyotypes in 2 species of Gymnotiformes, genus Gymnotus (G. sylvius and G. inaequilabiatus) were investigated by means of fluorescence ...
Conservation of dual-targeted proteins in Arabidopsis and rice points to a similar pattern of gene-family evolution
(SPRINGER HEIDELBERG, 2009)
Gene duplication followed by acquisition of specific targeting information and dual targeting were evolutionary strategies enabling organelles to cope with overlapping functions. We examined the evolutionary trend of ...
