The African Coelecanth genome provides insights into tetrapod evolution
(Macmillan Publishers, 2013)
The discovery of a living coelacanth specimen in 1938 was remarkable, as this lineage of lobe-finned fish was thought to have become extinct 70 million years ago. The modern coelacanth looks remarkably similar to many of ...
Taste and odorant receptors of the coelecanth- a gene repertoire in transition
G-protein coupled chemosensory receptors (GPCR-CRs) aid in the perception of odors and tastes in vertebrates. So far, six GPCR-CR families have been identified that are conserved in most vertebrate species. Phylogenetic ...
