Mammalian BEX, WEX and GASP genes: Coding and non-coding chimaerism sustained by gene conversion events

Abstract:

Background: The identification of sequence innovations in the genomes of mammals facilitates understanding of human gene function, as well as sheds light on the molecular mechanisms which underlie these changes. Although gene duplication plays a major role in genome evolution, studies regarding concerted evolution events among gene family members have been limited in scope and restricted to protein-coding regions, where high sequence similarity is easily detectable. Results: We describe a mam...
