Evolution of androgen-regulated mRNA expression in mouse kidney.


To gain information on the evolution of mammalian gene expression patterns, we studied the androgen-inducible expression of three kidney mRNAs in several mouse species (genus Mus). The RP2, ornithine decarboxylase, and beta-glucuronidase mRNAs have each evolved independently, in that the pattern of variation among species is unique for each. This suggests a… (More)
