    D E Janes
    Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA
    Genome Biol Evol 3:102-13. 2011
    ..These results show that the rate of retention of LCNS from the amniote ancestor differs between mammals and Reptilia (including birds) and that this may reflect differing roles and constraints in gene regulation...
