Systematic Identification and Evolution Analysis of Sox Genes in Coturnix japonica Based on Comparative Genomics
TLDR
Genetic analyses indicated that Sox genes are an ancient gene family, and strong purifying selections played key roles in the evolution of CjSox genes of C. japonica, and most Sox genes exhibited highly embryo-specific expression in both gonads.
Tissue-specific expression profiles and positive selection analysis in the tree swallow (Tachycineta bicolor) using a de novo transcriptome assembly
TLDR
Tissue-specific expression patterns of genes involved in sex steroidogenesis and processing were analyzed and provided new insights into potential sources of phenotypic variation in a free-living female bird and advance the understanding of fundamental questions in evolutionary and organismal biology.
Insights into the mechanism of bovine spermiogenesis based on comparative transcriptomic studies
TLDR
This study provides important data for revealing the mystery of life during spermiogenesis resulting from acrosome formation, histone replacement, and the fine regulation of gene expression.
Insights into the Mechanism of Bovine Spermiogenesis Based on Comparative Transcriptomic Studies
TLDR
This study provides important data for revealing the mystery of life during spermiogenesis resulting from acrosome formation, histone replacement, and the fine regulation of gene expression.
Insights into the Mechanism of Bovine Spermiogenesis Based on Comparative Transcriptomic Studies
TLDR
Differentially expressed genes (DEGs) involved in sperm head and tail formation, and epigenetic regulatory networks which regulated genetic material condensation, the deformation of the spermatid, and the expression of genes in it were found.
Identification and comparative profiling of gonadal microRNAs in the adult pigeon (Columba livia)
TLDR
The expression profiles of testicular and ovarian miRNA in adult pigeon gonads are presented for the first time, and the findings may contribute to a better understanding of gonadal expression in poultry.

The First Chameleon Transcriptome: Comparative Genomic Analysis of the OXPHOS System Reveals Loss of COX8 in Iguanian Lizards
TLDR
The first chameleon transcriptome is presented, obtained using deep sequencing (SOLiD), adding a new resource for comparative genomic studies, and shed new light on the evolutionary dynamics of the OXPHOS system.
Extreme mitochondrial evolution in the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi: Insight from mtDNA and the nuclear genome
TLDR
The unusual features identified in M. leidyi mtDNA make this organism an interesting system for the study of various aspects of mitochondrial biology, particularly protein and tRNA import and mt-ribosome structures, and add to its value as an emerging model species.
Review and meta‐analysis of natural selection in mitochondrial complex I in metazoans
TLDR
A novel hypothesis is proposed to explain the results of positive selection in mitochondrial genomes based on their bioenergetic life histories and a guide for laboratory and field studies to test this hypothesis is provided.
Fast adaptive coevolution of nuclear and mitochondrial subunits of ATP synthetase in orangutan.
TLDR
Surprisingly, human mtDNA was able to maintain in an orangutan nuclear background, even though these cells showed severe OXPHOS abnormalities, including a complete absence of assembled ATP synthetase.
The adaptive evolution of the mammalian mitochondrial genome
TLDR
This study provides insight into the adaptive evolution of the mtDNA genome in mammals and its implications for the molecular mechanism of oxidative phosphorylation, and presents a framework for future experimental characterization of the impact of specific mutations in the function, physiology, and interactions of themtDNA encoded proteins involved in oxidativeosphorylation.
Next generation sequencing and analysis of a conserved transcriptome of New Zealand's kiwi
TLDR
This investigation revealed patterns of mutation and purifying selection in conserved protein coding regions in birds, and suggests a relatively cost-effective way of obtaining a glimpse into the fundamental molecular evolutionary attributes of a genome, particularly when no closely related genomic sequence is available.
Mito-nuclear co-evolution: the positive and negative sides of functional ancient mutations
TLDR
Evidence of both negative and adaptive (positive) selection acting on the mtDNA and nDNA-encoded genes and the effect of both types of selection on mito-nuclear interacting factors are discussed.
