Evolution of tuf genes: ancient duplication, differential loss and gene conversion

Item Type:Article
Title:Evolution of tuf genes: ancient duplication, differential loss and gene conversion
Creators Name:Lathe, W.C. and Bork, P.
Abstract:The tuf gene of eubacteria, encoding the EF-tu elongation factor, was duplicated early in the evolution of the taxon. Phylogenetic and genomic location analysis of 20 complete eubacterial genomes suggests that this ancient duplication has been differentially lost and maintained in eubacteria.
