Minisatellite instability at the Adh locus reveals somatic polymorphism in amphioxus

Abstract

Amphioxus (subphylum Cephalochordata) is the closest living relative to vertebrates and widely used for phylogenetic analyses of vertebrate gene evolution. Amphioxus genes are highly polymorphic, but the origin and nature of this variability is unknown. We have analyzed the alcohol dehydrogenase locus (Adh3) in two amphioxus species (Branchiostoma… (More)
