Evolution of the trappin multigene family in the Suidae.

Abstract

Trappins are a group of secretory proteins containing a WAP motif with an anchoring domain. Previous studies showed that their genes, especially those of pig, have undergone rapid evolution, which produced trappins with a broad spectrum of actions. To understand the evolution of such a rapidly evolving multigene family, we isolated trappin genes of the… (More)
