    Mol Biol Evol 29:1791-6. 2012
    ..The result indicated that the A allele, possibly once extinct in the human lineage a long time ago, was resurrected by a recombination between B and O alleles less than 300,000 years ago...

    Takashi Kitano
    Department of Biomolecular Functional Engineering, College of Engineering, Ibaraki University
    Genes Genet Syst 85:121-7. 2010
    ..500 million years ago. It is likely that the four Rh family genes in vertebrates emerged by gene duplications in the common ancestor of vertebrates, and functional differentiation has occurred after the first gene duplication...

    Gene 543:22-7. 2014
    ..In contrast, the clear phylogenetic position of the RHBG-like gene could not be obtained. Probably some convergent events for cyclostome RHBG-like genes prevented the accurate identification of their phylogenetic positions. ..

    Kaoru Yamashita
    Department of Biomolecular Functional Engineering, College of Engineering, Ibaraki University, Hitachi 316 8511, Japan
    Mol Phylogenet Evol 67:520-8. 2013
    ..Since the OXT-OXTR system plays an important role in eutherians, the evolution of the OXT-OXTR system was probably an essential component of the genesis of the eutherian signature...
