Duplication and divergence of the retrovirus restriction gene Fv1 in Mus caroli allows protection from multiple retroviruses

Melvyn W. Yap, George R. Young, Renata Varnaite, Serge Morand, Jonathan P. Stoye, Harmit S. Malik
2020 PLoS Genetics  
A high degree of natural variation was observed in both Fv1 and Fv7 and, on top of positive selection at certain residues, insertions and deletions were present that changed the length of the reading frames  ...  We surveyed the Fv1 genes of wild mice trapped in Thailand and characterized their restriction activities against a panel of retroviruses.  ...  Thus, the variation seen truly reflects genetic variation in the natural population, with heterozygosity frequently observed for both genes.  ...

Evolution of duplicated non-coding RNAs in plants

Sishuo Wang
The full abstract for this thesis is available in the body of the thesis, and will be available when the embargo expires.  ...  Acknowledgements I would like to thank my supervisor, Keith Adams, for giving me the excellent opportunity to study several interesting questions in plant genome evolution as well as his great guidance  ...  This finding was further supported by another study where genes localized in CNV (copy number variation) regions were shown to have more miRNA-predicted targets in human (Felekkis et al. 2011 ).  ...
