    Matthew D Dean
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona, AZ, USA
    Mol Biol Evol 26:1733-43. 2009
    ..In contrast, proteins from the other five tissues showed significantly lower nonsynonymous substitution, revealing a previously unappreciated level of evolutionary constraint acting on the majority of male reproductive proteins...

    Matthew D Dean
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona 85721, USA
