Nat Genet 45:325-9. 2013..Overall, our results implicate ERV enhancer co-option as a mechanism underlying the extensive evolutionary diversification of placental development...
- Retroviruses facilitate the rapid evolution of the mammalian placentaEdward B Chuong
Department of Genetics, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA, USA
Bioessays 35:853-61. 2013..This in turn would expose a continuous stream of novel ERV mutations that may have catalyzed the developmental diversification of the mammalian placenta...
- Copy number variation is a fundamental aspect of the placental genomeRoberta L Hannibal
Department of Genetics, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, California, United States of America
PLoS Genet 10:e1004290. 2014..Our results reveal that large scale CNVs are a normal feature of the mammalian placental genome, which are regulated systematically during embryogenesis and are propagated by a mechanism of underreplication. ..
