Evolution of the growth hormone-prolactin-somatolactin system in relation to vertebrate tetraploidizations
2009 (English)In: Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, ISSN 0077-8923, E-ISSN 1749-6632, Vol. 1163, no 1, 491-493 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Gene sequences from several species representing major vertebrate groups were used to create phylogenetic trees for the growth hormone family of peptide hormones as well as the growth hormone receptor family. These analyses show that both the peptide and receptor families were formed through local duplications in early vertebrate evolution and chromosome duplications.
