• Analysis of recently duplicated TYRP1 genes and their effect on the formation of black patches in Oujiang‐color common carp

    2 days ago - By Animal Genetics

    Summary
    Tyrp1 gene, as a member of the tyrosinase family, has undergone a recent duplication event during fourth‐round whole genome duplication in common carp. In this research, three Tyrp1 genes were identified in Oujiang‐color common carp. The similar expression patterns and close phylogenetic relationship indicated that Tyrp1c is homologous to Tyrp1b and possibly originated from the ancient Tyrp1b. The rates of synonymous and non‐synonymous substitution in Tyrp1 across teleost phylogeny indicated that Tyrp1a is more likely to be in the process of purifying selection. The CRISPR/Cas9...
