“Contrasting patterns of coding and flanking region evolution in mammalian keratin associated protein-1 genes.” has been published in Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution.
- KRTAP1 gene repeats in mammals show a concerted evolution pattern.
- KRTAP1 gene flanking regions strongly contrast: show a divergent pattern of evolution.
- Contrast in patterns results from gene conversion events in KRTAP1 coding regions.
- Selective or non-selective processes may produce KRTAP1 coding region-specific events.
