Life-history evolution at the molecular level: adaptive amino acid composition of avian vitellogenins

Other literature type English OPEN
Hughes, Austin L.;

Avian genomes typically encode three distinct vitellogenin (VTG) egg yolk proteins (VTG1, VTG2 and VTG3), which arose by gene duplication prior to the most recent common ancestor of birds. Analysis of VTG sequences from 34 avian species in a phylogenetic framework suppo... View more
