Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 94:5156-61. 1997..From this analysis and the gene structure, we propose that modern Pax-4/6 and Pax-2/5/8 genes evolved from an ancestral gene similar to cnidarian Pax-B, having both the homeodomain and the octapeptide...

Genome Res 9:449-56. 1999..Hence, it appears that the majority of the introns in the SLRP genes were inserted after the differentiation of the SLRP genes from an ancestral gene that was most likely composed of 2-3 exons...
- Evolutionarily conserved, "acatalytic" carbonic anhydrase-related protein XI contains a sequence motif present in the neuropeptide sauvagine: the human CA-RP XI gene (CA11) is embedded between the secretor gene cluster and the DBP gene at 19q13.3D A Lovejoy

- Frequent gene conversion between human red and green opsin genesZ Zhao
J Mol Evol 46:494-6. 1998..In conclusion, gene conversion has occurred frequently between human red and green opsin genes, but exons 2, 3, 4, and 5 have been maintained distinct between the two genes by natural selection...
- Mitochondrial carbonic anhydrase CA VB: differences in tissue distribution and pattern of evolution from those of CA VA suggest distinct physiological rolesG N Shah
Edward A Doisy Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Department of Pediatrics, St Louis University School of Medicine, St Louis, MO 63104, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 97:1677-82. 2000..Both the differences in tissue distribution and the much greater evolutionary constraints on CA VB sequences suggest that CA VB and CA VA have evolved to assume different physiological roles...
