• Primates
  • There are two possible explanations for this anomaly: (1) DNA of other primates has not been sequenced thoroughly in the genomic region of the FAM203B ortholog, or (2) FAM203B is the result of a gene duplication event unique to humans, meaning that BRP16L in M. mulatta resulted from an earlier duplication event unique to that species.

  • lineages
  • The large amount of time since the divergence of the M. mulatta and D. rerio lineages suggests that these BRP16L genes are the result of separate duplication events. (wikipedia.org)
