Horizontal gene transfer in metazoans has been documented in only a few species and is usually associated with endosymbiosis or parasitism. [...] Key Result Some of the foreign genes were defective, whereas others were intact and transcribed; some of the latter contained functional spliceosomal introns. One such gene, apparently of bacterial origin, was overexpressed in Escherichia coli and yielded an active enzyme. The capture and functional assimilation of exogenous genes may represent an important force in…Expand
