Chapter 19

Molecular Evolution and Phylogenetics

12 and 15 November, 2004

overview
Overview
  • Comparing genome sequences has offered unprecedented insight into the nature and evolution of species.
  • Most animals have essentially the same genes.
  • Duplication may be followed by structural or regulatory diversification.
  • Regulatory divergence may involve a change in location of expression, in the structure of a regulator, or in the arrangement of enhancers that respond to a signal.
  • Manipulation of pattern formation genes can lead to striking changes in morphology.
  • Hox gene cluster organization is conserved from Drosophila to mammals.
  • Morphological differences between Arthropod groups are explicable in molecular terms.
  • Conservation of pattern formation mechanisms is common across phyla.
  • Humans have only 25-30 thousand genes, and develop complexity from combinatoric factors.

Swapping a repressor for an activator domain makes overexpressed Ubx produce a phenotype like that of overexpressed Antp.

slide18
A mutation in the Ubx enhancer led to altered expression of Ubx at the branchiopod - isopod split, and accounts for the presence of a maxilliped instead of a swimming limb in isopods.
