  • Whereas some yeast complexes have evolved by recruiting paralogues, this is not apparent in E. coli.

  • The polymorphisms in the 5′-part of the Rh2 gene sequence that is shared between paralogues Rh2a and Rh2b showed marginal associations with disease that were not significant after adjusting for potential confounders between the groups.

  • "Posterior" (HOX9-14) genes have restricted expression sites along the oral-aboral axis of the planula, but with two paralogues

  • We have discovered gene duplication of aspartic protease genes in Strongyloides and identified a pair of paralogues differentially expressed in either the parasitic or the free-living phase of the nematode life-cycle, consistent with an adaptive role for aspartic proteases in the evolution of nematode parasitism.

  • Most NAIP transcription in colon, spleen, lung, and prostate could be accounted for by the combined activity of all queried promoters, but the contribution of individual paralogues could not be assessed due to their high sequence identity.

  • Holliday Junctions are substrates of the mismatch-repair paralogues, Msh4 and Msh5

  • Given that most of these sequences probably represent true paralogues (see Section 3), the SOX family seems to be significantly more diverse in these two non-bilaterian species than it is in D. melanogaster (8 genes), C. elegans (5 genes) or C. intestinalis (6 genes) (Koopman et al.,

    As Expected

  • In other model systems it has been shown that paralogues can have different functions, for instance in case of the maturation switch of globin genes Figure 1F) indicates that the two ERbeta proteins may have diverse functions during development.
