..This assay will facilitate early stage sex-typing of embryonic and young gerbils which is difficult using current visual methods. Accession ID: Meriones unguiculatus: 10047. ..
Hargreaves A, Swain M, Logan D, Mulley J. Testing the Toxicofera: comparative transcriptomics casts doubt on the single, early evolution of the reptile venom system. Toxicon. 2014;92:140-56 pubmed publisher
..The apparent conservation of gene complements across the Toxicofera therefore reflects an artefact of incomplete tissue sampling. We therefore conclude that venom has evolved multiple times in reptiles. ..
Hargreaves A, Swain M, Hegarty M, Logan D, Mulley J. Restriction and recruitment-gene duplication and the origin and evolution of snake venom toxins. Genome Biol Evol. 2014;6:2088-95 pubmed publisher
..Thus, snake venom evolves through the duplication and subfunctionalization of genes encoding existing salivary proteins. These results highlight the danger of the elegant and intuitive "just-so story" in evolutionary biology. ..
