The evolutionary dynamics of the 4CL gene encoding 4-coumarate:coenzyme A ligase was investigated in the genus Larix (Pinaceae) by comparing copy number, GC content and codon usage, sequence divergence, and phylogenetic analysis. All 4CL clones of Larix formed a strongly supported monophyletic group, in which two robust clades (4clA and 4clB) derived from an ancient gene duplication event in the common ancestor of Larix were identified. Further gene duplication in the 4clA clade gave rise to… CONTINUE READING
