Globin gene structure in a reptile supports the transpositional model for amniote α- and β-globin gene evolution

Patel, Vidushi; Ezaz, Tariq; Deakin, Janine; Graves, Jennifer


The haemoglobin protein, required for oxygen transportation in the body, is encoded by α- and β-globin genes that are arranged in clusters. The transpositional model for the evolution of distinct α-globin and β-globin clusters in amniotes is much simp
