Restriction and recruitment - gene duplication and the origin and evolution of snake venom toxins

bioRxiv

Jun 6, 2014

Adam D HargreavesJohn F Mulley

Abstract

Snake venom has been hypothesised to have originated and diversified via a process that involves duplication of genes encoding body proteins with subsequent recruitment of the copy to the venom gland, where natural selection acts to develop or increase toxicity. However, gene duplicatio...read more

Chromosomal Duplication

Chromosomal duplication is a result of extra genetic material within the area of the chromosome. The duplication may have no effect or may be expressed in the phenotype of that individual. Some duplications are thought to be of evolutionary selection. Discover the latest research on chromosomal duplication here.

Gene Evolution & Mutation

The identification of precise mutations is required for a complete understanding of the underlying molecular and evolutionary mechanisms driving adaptive phenotypic chang
