Evidence for a Retroviral Insertion in TRPM1 as the Cause of Congenital Stationary Night Blindness and Leopard Complex Spotting in the Horse
Leopard complex spotting is a group of white spotting patterns in horses caused by an incompletely dominant gene (LP) where homozygotes (LP/LP) are also affected with congenital stationary nightExpand

Evolutionary History of Saber-Toothed Cats Based on Ancient Mitogenomics
Saber-toothed cats (Machairodontinae) are among the most widely recognized representatives of the now largely extinct Pleistocene megafauna. However, many aspects of their ecology, evolution, andExpand

Inactivation of thermogenic UCP1 as a historical contingency in multiple placental mammal clades
Inactivation of uncoupling protein 1 is linked to shifts in metabolic rate, body size, and species richness of eight mammalian lineages. Mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1) is essential forExpand

Morphological and genetic evidence for early Holocene cattle management in northeastern China.
The domestication of cattle is generally accepted to have taken place in two independent centres: around 10,500 years ago in the Near East, giving rise to modern taurine cattle, and two millenniaExpand
