The evolution of haemoglobin gene loci in amniotes

Patel, Vidushi S


The genes in alpha ({u03B1})- and beta ({u03B2})- globin clusters constitute a functional haemoglobin molecule, crucial for oxygen transportation. In most fish and amphibians, {u03B1}- and {u03B2}-globin genes are located together, whereas in amniotes (birds and mammals), there are two distinct clusters. Several complex models have been proposed to explain the evolution of these gene clusters. However, there was a lack of data for key positions in amniote phylogeny to discern which one was most...[Show more]
