[PSM2 and POLR2J gene families as molecular markers of the higher primate evolution].

Abstract

We have studied the molecular evolution of two gene families specific for primates: POLR2J of the transcription system and PMS2 of the MMR repair system. The appearance and improvement of the genetic structure in each of the families was shown to strongly correlate with the main stages of the higher primates biological evolution. Our results indicate that the PSM2 and POLR2J genes can serve as helpful and reliable molecular markers of anthropogenesis.
