Lemaitre C, Tannier E, Gautier C, Sagot M. Precise detection of rearrangement breakpoints in mammalian chromosomes. BMC Bioinformatics. 2008;9:286 pubmed publisher
..Contrary to current methods which search for synteny blocks and simply return what remains in the genome as breakpoints, we propose to go further and to investigate the breakpoints themselves in order to refine them...
B hne A, Darras A, D Cotta H, Baroiller J, Galiana Arnoux D, Volff J. The vertebrate makorin ubiquitin ligase gene family has been shaped by large-scale duplication and retroposition from an ancestral gonad-specific, maternal-effect gene. BMC Genomics. 2010;11:721 pubmed publisher
..Comparative expression analysis strongly suggests that the ancestral E3 ubiquitin ligase function of the single copy mkrn gene before duplication in vertebrates was gonad-specific, with maternal expression in early embryos...
