Abstract

Chemosensory receptors are essential for the survival of organisms that range from bacteria to mammals. Recent studies have shown that the numbers of functional chemosensory receptor genes and pseudogenes vary enormously among the genomes of different animal species. Although much of the variation...

Abstract

Concerted evolution is often invoked to explain the diversity and evolution of the multigene families of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) and immunoglobulin (Ig) genes. However, this hypothesis has been controversial because the member genes of these families from the same species are not...

Abstract

The natural killer (NK) receptor gene complex (NKC) encodes a large number of C-type lectin-like receptors, which are expressed on NK and other immune-related cells. These receptors play an important role in regulating NK-cell cytolytic activity, protecting cells against virus infection and...

Abstract

Ly49 genes regulate the cytotoxic activity of natural killer (NK) cells in rodents and provide important protection against virus-infected or tumour cells. About 15 Ly49 genes have been identified in mice, but only a few genes have been reported to date in rats. Here we studied all Ly49 genes in...

Abstract

This review discusses statistical methods for estimating genetic distances and phylogenetic trees from data on DNA sequences, restriction fragment length polymorphisms, random amplification of polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and microsatellite DNA. A new method of estimating DNA sequence divergence from...

Abstract

The comparative analysis of DNA sequences is becoming increasingly important in systematic and evolutionary biology and will continue to be so as faster and more efficient methods of collecting the data are developed. This book, whose individual chapters are written by experts representing...

Abstract

This book presents the statistical methods that are useful in the study of molecular evolution and illustrates how to use them in actual data analysis. Molecular evolution has been developing at a great pace, driven by the huge increase in genetic sequence data from many organisms, the improvement...

Abstract

Ubiquitin is a highly conserved protein that is encoded by a multigene family. It is generally believed that this gene family is subject to concerted evolution, which homogenizes the member genes of the family. However, protein homogeneity can be attained also by strong purifying selection. We...

Abstract

Specimens of Chorthippus parallelus parallelus, C. p. erythropus, C. montanus, C. curtipennis and C. dorsatus, collected from a number of sites in Quebec, France and the German Federal Republic, in 1983, were examined electrophoretically. The analysis indicated that C. curtipennis is very closely...
