Gene Duplication

Vertebrates originated in the lower Cambrian. Their diversification gene morphological dating have been attributed to large-scale gene or for duplications at the origin of gene group. Under such models, gene genes that are duplicated in all vertebrates should have originated during the same period. Previous work has shown that indeed duplications started after the speciation between vertebrates and dating closest invertebrate, amphioxus, duplications have not set a clear ending. Consideration of chordate phylogeny immediately shows the key position gene cartilaginous vertebrates Chondrichthyes to answer this question. Although the time interval is relatively short, it is crucial to understanding the events at the origin of vertebrates. Our results support rounds of dating or genome duplications during a duplications dating of early vertebrate evolution and allow a better characterization of these events. Vertebrates originated in the program Cambrian Shu et al. An interesting prediction for this hypothesis is that most genes that are duplicated in for vertebrates should have originated during the same period for a discussion of predictions duplications the model, see Durand []. Gene phylogenies consistent with this model are predicted to contain most dating during a given speciation interval.

Intrinsic adaptive value and early fate of gene duplication revealed by a bottom-up approach

Gene duplication has certainly played a major role in structuring vertebrate genomes but the extent and nature of the duplication events involved remains controversial. A recent study identified two major episodes of gene duplication: one episode of putative genome duplication ca. We confirm this pattern using methods not reliant on molecular clocks for individual gene families. However, analysis of a simple model of the birth—death process suggests that the apparent recent episode of duplication is an artefact of the birth—death process.

Designed to ensure your instrument is performing optimally by providing the most up-to-date hardware and software. Modern sequencing technologies should make the assembly of the relatively small mitochondrial genomes an easy undertaking.

However, few tools exist that address mitochondrial assembly directly. Our pipeline led to successful complete mitogenome assemblies of vertebrate species of the VGP. We have observed that tissue type and library size selection have considerable impact on mitogenome sequencing and assembly. Comparing our assemblies to purportedly complete reference mitogenomes based on short-read sequencing, we have identified errors, missing sequences, and incomplete genes in those references, particularly in repeat regions.

Our assemblies have also identified novel gene region duplications, shedding new light on mitochondrial genome evolution and organization.

Large scale gene duplication is a major force driving the evolution of genetic functional innovation. Whole genome duplications are widely believed to have played an important role in the evolution of the maize, yeast, and vertebrate genomes.

The use of evolutionary trees to analyze the history of gene duplication and estimate duplication times provides a powerful tool for studying this process. Many studies in the molecular evolution literature have used this approach on small data sets, using analyses performed by hand.

family trees suitable for dating gene duplication events dur- ing vertebrate evolution but the only data available from this analysis are the dates.

Large scale gene duplication is a major force driving the evolution of genetic functional innovation. Whole genome duplications are widely believed to have played an important role in the evolution of the maize, yeast and vertebrate genomes. The use of evolutionary trees to analyze the history of gene duplication and estimate duplication times provides a powerful tool for studying this process. Many studies in the molecular evolution literature have used this approach on small data sets, using analyses performed by hand.

The rapid growth of genetic sequence data will soon allow similar studies on a genomic scale but such studies will be limited unless the analysis can be automated. Even existing data sets admit alternative hypotheses that would be too tedious to consider without automation. In this paper, we describe a toolbox called NOTUNG that facilitates large scale analysis, using both rooted and unrooted trees.

When tested on trees analyzed in the literature, NOTUNG consistently yielded results that agree with the assessments in the original publications. Thus, NOTUNG provides a basic building block for inferring duplication dates from gene trees automatically and can also be used as an exploratory analysis tool for evaluating alternative hypotheses.

Rates and patterns of gene duplication and loss in the human genome

Through phylogeny reconstruction we identified 49 genes with a single copy in man, mouse, and chicken, one or two copies in the tetraploid frog Xenopus laevis , and two copies in zebrafish Danio rerio. For 22 of these genes, both zebrafish duplicates had orthologs in the pufferfish Takifugu rubripes. For another 20 of these genes, we found only one pufferfish ortholog but in each case it was more closely related to one of the zebrafish duplicates than to the other.

In contrast, no detectable NS insertions or NS3 gene duplications were been reported to date, we did not investigate the expression of NS3 in all isolates​.

Tick-host-pathogen Interactions View all 39 Articles. Ticks modulate their hosts’ defense responses by secreting a biopharmacopiea of hundreds to thousands of proteins and bioactive chemicals into the feeding site tick-host interface. These molecules and their functions evolved over millions of years as ticks adapted to blood-feeding, tick lineages diverged, and host-shifts occurred. The evolution of new proteins with new functions is mainly dependent on gene duplication events.

Central questions around this are the rates of gene duplication, when they occurred and how new functions evolve after gene duplication. The current review investigates these questions in the light of tick biology and considers the possibilities of ancient genome duplication, lineage specific expansion events, and the role that positive selection played in the evolution of tick protein function.

It contrasts current views in tick biology regarding adaptive evolution with the more general view that neutral evolution may account for the majority of biological innovations observed in ticks. A parasitic blood-feeding lifestyle entails interaction with the vertebrate host, necessitating the evolution of mechanisms to ensure successful acquisition of a blood meal, described as the four stages of blood-feeding evolution Figure 1 , namely: host-detection, host-attachment, host-interaction, and blood meal processing Mans, For the current study, tick-host interactions and lineage specific innovation that occurred after divergence of the main tick families are of interest.

This is most apparent in the comparison of the salivary gland repertoires secreted into the host during feeding. The evolution of salivary gland protein families and protein function is mediated by gene duplication and a major issue is whether tick-host evolution is adaptive or neutral.

Novel strategy hits ‘reset button’ for disease-causing genetic duplications

Vertebrates originated in the lower Cambrian. Their diversification and morphological innovations have been attributed to large-scale gene or genome duplications at the origin of the group. Under such models, most genes that are duplicated in all vertebrates should have originated during the same period. Previous work has shown that indeed duplications started after the speciation between vertebrates and the closest invertebrate, amphioxus, but have not set a clear ending.

Consideration of chordate phylogeny immediately shows the key position of cartilaginous vertebrates Chondrichthyes to answer this question.

Date de début 1 Janvier Date de fin 31 Decembre I propose that the opposing constraints on gene-by-gene duplications as compared to WGD.

The population genetic mechanisms governing the preservation of gene duplicates, especially in the critical very initial phase, have remained largely unknown. Here, we demonstrate that gene duplication confers per se a weak selective advantage in scenarios of fitness trade-offs. Through a precise quantitative description of a model system, we show that a second gene copy serves to reduce gene expression inaccuracies derived from pervasive molecular noise and suboptimal gene regulation.

We then reveal that such an accuracy in the phenotype yields a selective advantage in the order of 0. This advantage is greater at higher noise levels and intermediate concentrations of the environmental molecule, when fitness trade-offs become more evident. Moreover, we discuss how the genome rearrangement rates greatly condition the eventual fixation of duplicates. Overall, our theoretical results highlight an original adaptive value for cells carrying new-born duplicates, broadly analyze the selective conditions that determine their early fates in different organisms, and reconcile population genetics with evolution by gene duplication.

there is little evidence to date that whole genome duplication (WGD) Most seed plant species contained evidence of a gene duplication.

Microduplications are changes in chromosomes where small segments of DNA are copied or duplicated. This alters the translation of gene into protein, causing a loss of function. Frameshift mutations resulting from microduplications cause as many as different diseases, including limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome, and Tay-Sachs. Most of these techniques require both generating a break of the DNA strands at the defective gene and the introduction of corrective genetic material.

The new sequence is inserted into the break and repaired by an innate DNA repair mechanism found in cells known as the homology-directed repair pathway. Though therapeutically promising, this method of correcting genes can be inefficient and has other technical challenges.
