A genome-wide view of transcription factor gene diversity in chordate evolution: less gene loss in amphioxus?

Abstract:

Previous studies of gene diversity in the homeobox superclass have shown that the Florida amphioxus Branchiostoma floridae has undergone remarkably little gene family loss. Here we use a combined BLAST and HMM search strategy to assess the family level diversity of four other transcription factor superclasses: the Paired/Pax genes, Tbx genes, Fox genes and Sox genes. We apply this across genomes from five chordate taxa, including B. floridae and Ciona intestinalis, plus two outgroup taxa. Our...
