Evolutionary Diversity of Vertebrate Small Heat Shock Proteins
TLDR
It is inferred that at least 13 intron insertions have occurred during the evolution of chordate sHsp genes, while a single ancient intron is maintained in some lineages, in line with the general trend of massive intron gain before or during early vertebrate radiation. Expand
The human genome encodes 10 α-crystallin–related small heat shock proteins: HspB1–10
TLDR
An inventory of all human genes that code for α-crystallin–related small heat shock proteins (sHsps) was obtained, using the human Hsp27 protein sequence as a query in the protein databases, which are derived from the predicted genes in the human genome. Expand

Evolution of closely linked gene pairs in vertebrate genomes.
TLDR
It is shown here that a lack of head-to-tail (h2t) gene duos is an even more distinctive characteristic of mammalian genomes, with the platypus genome as the only exception. Expand
